Street Closures for Los Angeles Triathlon on Sunday
Anyone living or planning on getting to Venice, Mid-City, Koreatown or Downtown tomorrow, good luck. The 14th annual Herbalife Triathlon Los Angeles will force drivers in the area looking for alternate routes.
After the swim in the ocean, the triathletes will begin the 24-mile bicycle portion of race on Venice Blvd. at Pacific Ave. The course will take a left turn on Fairfax Ave., make a right at Olympic Blvd. before ending at Figueroa St. for the run portion of the race.
The race ends with a 6.2 mile run through Downtown up Grand St. to Second St. and back to LA Live.
Closures begin in Venice at 6:30 a.m. and streets will gradually begin reopening around 9:30 a.m. Venice Blvd. at Robertson Blvd. will reopen around 10 a.m.
Olympic Blvd will be closed at Fairfax Ave. at 6:45 a.m. and will be reopened in Koreatown around 11 a.m.
Downtown closures will begin at 6:30 a.m. and will reopen around 1 p.m.
There won't be any crossing points along the course. So if you need to get around the race, you should try the 405 freeway on the Westside, the 10 Freeway around Mid City and First Street or 12th Street if you happen to be downtown.
