The CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge is today and that means road closures, detours, and parking changes. These are all of the changes to Albany today so you can prepare and still get home from work at a reasonable hour.

The CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge is the largest annual road race between Utica and New York City, according to News10. This year's race has raised a record $44,000 (almost $20,000 more than last year) for both The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York as well as the Albany Public Library Foundation.

The race is 3.5 miles long and begins on Madison Avenue at the Empire State Plaza at 6:25PM. The Albany Police is enforcing these parking restrictions and road closures. All closed roads will be reopened after the race.
