WASHINGTON — The eighth annual Nation’s Triathlon is affecting some traffic for Washington travelers.
Thousands of participants and spectators were expected to be part of the running, biking and swimming event Sunday along the Potomac River. It started at 7 a.m. and roads were expected to reopen about 1 p.m.
Some of the major road closings include the 14th Street bridge’s outbound HOV lanes, the Potomac River Freeway of I-66 past the Kennedy Center and the Whitehurst Freeway.
The course includes a swim in the Potomac River, a 10k run and a bike course that goes through the city and briefly into Virginia.
