Tour de France - roads closed?

Just noticed that the Tour de France will be in Epernay the day we are leaving to go north (8 July).

I know absolutley nothing about the Tour de France. Will the roads be closed? Will be be able to get out of Epernay that morning?

The route itself will be closed, which may or may not mean you can get out of town.

They close the road about 3 hours before the race starts...then it's closed until just after the peloton passes.
