Road closures, due to the USA Triathlon Youth & Junior National Championships at Voice of America Park, are coming this weekend to a busy shopping area in West Chester.
The closures will occur from approximately 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. The following areas will be affected: Cox Road between Liberty Way and the northern entrance of the VOA Retail Center; and Liberty Way between Cox Road and Butler-Warren Road.
Access to most Cox Road businesses will be maintained from Tylersville Road and businesses on Service Center Drive will be accessible from Liberty Way.
While no races will take place on Friday, motorists should be on the alert for cyclists on Tylersville and Butler-Warren as athletes prepare for the events.
The USA Triathlon Youth & Junior National Championships will feature more than 700 triathletes ages 7 to 19 from across the country, who will compete in youth, youth elite and junior elite categories. VOA Park hosted the event for the first time last year, as the event generated approximately $700,000 in the local economy.
VOA Park will also host the event in 2014 and 2015.
