2010 LA Triathalon

In order to secure the cycle and run courses, street closures by the Department of Transportation will begin as early as 3:30am.

There will be NO CROSSING POINTS this year, cross traffic will be minimal and only before the event at key major intersections. It is advised that motorists avoid the areas affected by the event, if at all possible. Vehicles will not be allowed on the course at any time and will only be allowed to cross the route at Department of Transportation maintained crossing points.

The Department of Transportation will be aggressively enforcing all temporary-parking restrictions for this event to secure the safety of the participants and to facilitate the movement of traffic around road closures. Typical costs for towed vehicles include $70 for the citation and between $150 and $185 to recover the vehicle from the towing company.
