Be prepared for triathlon traffic issues
The Land Rover TriRock Triathlon will begin at 7 a.m. Sunday on Clearwater Beach and could affect traffic in parts of the city. The triathletes will complete a swim in the gulf at Pier 60, transition to a bike course that stretches from Union Street in north Clearwater to the Belleair Causeway, then finish with a run across the Clearwater Memorial Causeway. Most roads will remain open to vehicles, but traffic could be affected from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. as cyclists and vehicles share the roads and police may halt traffic temporarily at some intersections. Most impacts will be in the areas of Clearwater Beach, downtown Clearwater, Belleair Bluffs and Belleair Beach. Only one road will be closed throughout to vehicle traffic: Gulfview Boulevard on Clearwater Beach between Hamden and Coronado drives from 6 to 11:30 a.m.
