THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (April 15, 2016) – The annual CB&I TRI–The Woodlands Triathlon is set for Saturday, April 30, 2016, beginning at 7 a.m. This year’s race is a USA Triathlon (USAT) sanctioned event and will feature a field of more than 1,400 participants.
To ensure runner and spectator safety for the 2016 CB&I TRI event, Montgomery County Sheriff's Office will be responsible for closing and re-opening lanes on streets along the race route, and residents are advised to plan accordingly during the morning hours during the event.
The race will start and finish at Northshore Park, and portions of Woodlands Parkway, Lake Woodlands Drive, Research Forest Drive, Grogan’s Mill Road and roads in the Town Center will be used for the race. It is expected that some traffic delays will be experienced during the morning, in and around the race route. Residents are encouraged to avoid delays and use alternate routes around the race, as lanes along the race course will be closed to automobile traffic from 6 to 10:30 a.m.
Complete information on this event, including estimated lane openings, can be found on the Traffic Information page on the Township’s website. After the race starts, lanes will re-open on a rolling basis as soon as the last participant has passed and all course support materials have been removed. These particular areas will be congested throughout the event, and residents are encouraged to use extreme caution while traveling throughout the course. Proper planning and awareness of lane closure schedules should help alleviate any major interruptions.
There will be a police officer at every intersection along the race route, and deputies will attempt to allow cars through, if and only when there is a safe opportunity.
