Color Me Rad will be held at the Altamont Fairgrounds Saturday and participants are reminded that Route 146 is seeing construction.  Guilderland PD say those attending the 5K are asked to find an alternate route because alternating traffic will be in place on Route 146 until 6 p.m. and traffic congestion is expected.
