Downtown Richmond is bracing for a cluster of bicycle races on Sept. 25. The consensus strategy for some government agencies appears to be to stay home that day.
The Supreme Court of Virginia and the Court of Appeals of Virginia will close their Richmond offices that Friday, the courts reported on their web page.
Federal courts in downtown Richmond, including the U.S. District Court and U.S. Bankruptcy Court, earlier announced they, too, would be closed on the 25th.
The 2015 Road World Championships begin Saturday, Sept. 19, and end Sunday, Sept. 27.
