9A in Briarcliff and More Sunday Road Closures

The Tough Man Half Triathlon will close several major roads, in Briarcliff Manor and north.

You may want to check a traffic map before you head out this weekend.

"Route 9A, southbound, will be closed to traffic from Crotonon-Hudson to Briarcliff Manor," Philip Zegarelli, village manager shared in his latest report to the community. "Therefore, the southbound intersections of Chappaqua and North State Roads and Route 9A will be closed. Drivers can access Route 9A southbound at Pleasantville Road.

From 5:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Zegarelli said, "Police officers will be at these locations to ensure that no vehicular or pedestrian traffic crosses Route 9A. Please be aware that there will be no exceptions. It should also be noted that plans have been put in place to ensure that police, fire and ambulance services will not be affected."

Additionally, Route 9 southbound from the Bear Mountain Parkway in Peekskill through Ossining will be closed during the same hours. Route 9A's closure will extend from Croton-on-Hudson to Briarcliff Manor's Route 100 exit.

The 2012 Toughman Triathlon will kick off at 6:30 a.m. Sunday with a 1.2-mile swim, followed by a 56-mile bike ride at 7:15 a.m. Starting at 9:30 a.m., the 13.1-mile run portion will begin and run through Van Cortlandt Manor to Route 129.

If you are traveling in the area of the closed roads Sunday, officials advise rerouting from Croton to Route 129 East to Quaker Bridge Road. Then, head over the Quaker Bridge and continue south on Quaker Bridge Road south until it meets Albany Post Road. From there, you can go south to access Route 9 south in Ossining.

While Route 129 will remain open during the race, the lanes will be narrowed by cones for the race's runners—traffic delays are anticipated as a result.

If you're looking to cheer on the athletes, check out  for the end of the race. Officials say that there will be shuttle bus service from the Croton-on-Hudson train station to the park between the hours of 5 a.m. until 4 p.m. For further information you can visit the toughman website at http://www.toughmantri.com.
