Triathlon to close some St. Pete streets this weekend

ST. PETERSBURG — As triathletes rise early for the St. Anthony's Triathlon on Sunday, several roads will be closed to accommodate the race.

Closures are planned between 7 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Traffic also will be stopped in several other spots during the race for the safety of athletes, organizers said.

Closures include:

• Brightwaters Boulevard between Snell Isle Boulevard and the turnaround in the 1900 block of Brightwaters.

•Bayshore Drive between Seventh Avenue N and Fifth Avenue S.

•North Shore Drive NE and Coffee Pot Boulevard between Seventh and 22nd avenues N.

•Fifth Avenue S from First to Fourth streets.

•Pinellas Point Drive (drivers will be allowed to cross when safe to do so).

Roads with intermittent closures:

•First Avenue S between 28th and First streets S.

•Fourth Street S between 18th Avenue S and Pinellas Point Drive.

•Portions of First, Third, Fourth and Sixth streets S between First Avenue S and Pinellas Point Drive.

•Snell Isle Bridge will have limited vehicle traffic.

Organizers said construction on portions of Dr. Martin Luther King Street S caused them to adjust the race route this year. So if you're banking on an alternate route based on last year's course, be sure to check the new map. For details visit www.SATriathlon.com.
