Mile Markers


Triathlon changes traffic patterns

Traffic patterns will change from 6 to 11 a.m. Saturday for the 3rd Annual Key West Triathlon, with more than 1,000 participants.

Atlantic Boulevard will be closed; South Roosevelt Boulevard will be one-way, outbound only, from Bertha Street to the Salt Pond condominiums. Outbound drivers on Flagler Avenue at South Roosevelt must use the left lane, as before the North Roosevelt Boulevard reconstruction project changes were made.

Drivers at Flagler may still turn right onto South Roosevelt, which will be two-way up to the Salt Pond condos.

Incoming traffic at the Triangle may temporarily not be able to turn left and instead be redirected to North Roosevelt. Police will be directing traffic, according to triathlon organizers. For more information, go to
