Residents & Road Closures

Area Residents

The 2023 Grand Rapids Triathlon will be a two-day event, held on Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11. Roads in your area will be closed for this event. Both Thornapple River Drive and Buttrick Ave will be closed. Thornapple River Drive  and Buttrick Ave (between Thornapple & Grand River Dr.) will be closed from the early morning hours on both days of the event, until the event is over. Saturday road closures from 4 am to 11:30 am. Sunday road closures from 4 am to 5 pm. There will be no over night road closures.  Residents that live on the closed roads will have access to the roads. You may have to go around some barricades and be prepared to show your ID. In case you are planning a graduation party, birthday, etc., please let me know ASAP and I will work with you and the Sheriff Department on access for your guests. Churches will be open but you may need to take a detour. There will be delays and traffic will be re-routed.

Both Fire Trucks and Ambulances have been notified and have access thru the road closures.

Feel free to contact me if you have further questions: 616.551.7385 or

Thank you for your continued support,
John Mosey, Co-Director
