Stretches of Venice, Olympic Boulevards to Close for Triathlon


The 14th annual Herbalife Triathlon will force the closure of several streets on Sunday.

“Rolling” street closures for Sunday’s 14th annual Herbalife Triathlon will pose challenges for motorists trying to navigate between Venice Beach and L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles.

As amateur and professional athletes from 17 countries swim, bike and run in the triathlon, drivers in Venice, Mid-City and Koreatown will be forced to use freeways to bypass closed streets.

Westsiders are urged to take the 405 Freeway to get around the closure of Venice Boulevard from Pacific Avenue to Fairfax Avenue.

Drivers affected by the closure of Olympic Boulevard from Fairfax Avenue to Figueroa Street are advised to take the 10 Freeway to the 405 or to downtown ramps to go north or south.
