Kelowna will host the Axel Merckx Youth Cycling Series Aug. 10 to 12 and according to the city, that will prompt brief closures of two local roads during the day.

To accommodate the event there will be intermittent road closures on Jim Bailey Crescent and Jim Bailey Road on Saturday, Aug. 11. The closures will occur between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. for approximately 10 to 15 minutes, with openings to allow vehicles to pass through.
