STONE HARBOR – The Stone Harbor Triathlon will take place July 15. Residents should expect town-wide delays from 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.
The triathlon will utilize all major roads within town. Road closures will include Third Avenue from 87th Street to 90th Street and Second Avenue from 87th Street to 90th Street.
While First Avenue will remain “open,” expect delays after 8 a.m. as the majority of racers will transition from the bike course on Second Avenue to the run course on First Avenue. When this happens, traffic may be re-routed to Second Avenue where the traffic posts will begin to allow vehicle traffic through when possible.
It is strongly recommended that residents who do not need to travel during this time do not do so. Those who must travel through town during the race are asked to exercise patience and consider utilizing the following alternate routes:
Vehicles attempting to travel north from locations south of 87th Street are urged to take Stone Harbor Blvd. to the Garden State Parkway. Vehicles can then re-enter the island via Avalon Blvd.
Vehicles attempting to travel south, from locations north of 90th Street are urged to take Avalon Blvd. to the Garden State Parkway. Vehicles can then re-enter the island via Stone Harbor Blvd.
