Motorists should expect traffic delays Oct. 20 in South Lake County

RELEASE DATE: October 18, 2007

CLERMONT — The Lake County Department of Public Works is advising motorists that they could experience traffic delays on several roadways in South Lake County on Saturday, Oct. 20, due to the 17th Annual Great Floridian Triathlon. 

Consult the course maps for the bicycling and running courses of the triathlon to find a list of affected roadways and estimates of expected traffic delays. Motorists may want to try to avoid these roadways entirely.

The 17th Annual Great Floridian Triathlon is the nation's largest independent ultra-distance triathlon. More than 1,000 athletes from 45 states and 15 countries are expected to participate in the triathlon. The iron-distance triathlon features a 2.4-mile swim in Lake Minneola, a 112-mile bicycling course and a 26.2-mile running course.

Spectators can cheer on the triathlon athletes at Clermont Waterfront Park, located at 100 Third St., or in Sumter County near the intersection of county roads 478 and 48.
