THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (April 23, 2014) – The 2014 CB&I TRI—The Woodlands Triathlon—takes place on Saturday, May 3, 2014, and some lane closures and one road closure will be in effect during a portion of the race.
Due to the ongoing SJRA project and other road construction projects, the route for the CB&I TRI has changed. The bike route for the 2014 will begin at Northshore Park and continue west in the left lane of Lake Woodlands Drive to Sterling Ridge Drive. Riders will use the Carlton Woods Roundabout and return east on Sterling Ridge and in the left lane of Lake Woodlands Drive eastbound back to Northshore Park.. This will leave the right lane(s) open for traffic for the duration of the bicycle portion of the race. Most residents will be able to leave their neighborhoods by turning right; left turns will not be permitted during the race.
The only road closure for the bicycle course is on Lake Woodlands Drive Bridge with limited access between New Trails Drive and Lake Front Circle. Eastbound traffic for this closure will be rerouted to East Panther Creek Drive and westbound traffic will be rerouted to Grogans Mill Road. This closure has been consistent for the majority of the past 10 years. The bridge and lane closures will be in effect from early morning until approximately 10:30 a.m.
The running course for the CB&I TRI will be from Northshore Park along The Woodlands Waterway and there will be no lane or road closures for this portion of the race.
