This coming Sunday August 27 is the Hero Hustle. This is a triathlon that is a fundraiser for Delaware County Public Safety – Fire – EMS – Law Enforcement. The Delaware County Supervisors have approved closing a portion of the roadway from 9 A.M. to 11 A.M. for the bike leg of the triathlon that may affect folks in the Lake Delhi area. This is from Manchester south on 180 Ave to 275th St going east to 197th Ave. During the bike leg of the race, travelers will be allowed when safe to travel directly across these roads but will not be allowed to enter the roadway. Travelers will need to turn around or take another route. Travelers can also wait until the bike leg is completed. There will be about 200 athletes traveling on these roads so to ensure their safety the roadway will be closed for any travel on the roads. Can you please send an e-blast to all the members of your Lake Delhi Dam Associations and anyone that you have contact with and advise them of this event. If they need to travel during the hours of the race please ask them to choose another route or travel before 9 A.M. or after 11 A.M. As soon as the last athlete clears the route the road will be reopened.
If you have any questions please call Lorette Welcher at 563 608-4710 or you can reach her at KMCH radio 563 927-6249. She wanted to get this out to everyone so plans can be made accordingly.
