Freeway traffic through Albuquerque will be delayed Friday morning as the annual Run for the Wall motorcycle caravan makes its way through the city.

The caravan  will depart from Route 66 Casino at approximately 11:00, entering Albuquerque at around 11:15. From there the caravan will move along to I-25.

Various events are planned along the route. Rio Grande Valley Blue Star Mothers will be arranging a flag support team at the Algodones Overpass. Additionally, there will be a 50-foot flag hanging from two fire ladder trucks on the Unser Overpass. The 98th Street Overpass will be filled with Patriot Guard Riders Supporters.

Ambassadors of Run for the Wall will do their best to stop and thank people everywhere they see supporters standing at various locations.
