    Why is it the county does not require some sort of signage in advance to warn residents? If you happen to miss it posted someplace like RestonNow, and need to leave your home Sunday morning, you are trapped and significantly delayed. This is incredibly annoying. I have no problem with the Marathon – just the lack of notice and courtesy to the residents who live in the area.
