Street and Road Closures

There will be a hard closure (meaning no entry) in Downtown Paso Robles, starting at 7:00 pm. on Wednesday, May 18 and ending at 7:00 pm. on Thursday, May 19.

The race route will utilize a rolling closure – streets and roads will temporarily close as the first riders approach and open after the last support vehicle has passed. Delays may be experienced between the hours of 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. and should last no longer than 20 minutes.

Emergency vehicles will be not affected by road closures. All road closures will affect traffic lanes in both directions. Every effort will be made to accommodate residents.

Please note the following in planning your Wednesday, May 18 and Thursday, May 19:

  1. Spring Street between 9th and 13th Street and the downtown core will close for event set-up on Wednesday, May 18 at 7 p.m. with reopening scheduled for 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 19.
  2. The closure will extend on Spring Street from 8th to 13th Street beginning at 5 a.m. Thursday, May 19.
  3. No parking along the entire course will be in effect from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 19.
  4. As the riders approach City limits traveling east on Nacimiento Lake Drive, streets along the race course will be temporarily blocked to allow for the safe passage of riders. This "rolling closure" will begin at approximately 3 p.m. and should last only 30 minutes. However, there will be a full roadway closure of Nacimiento Lake Drive near Slate Ranch Road beginning at approximately 2 p.m. No traffic will be allowed to travel westbound on Nacimiento Lake Drive from that point until after the riders have passed.
  5. All parking and closure restrictions are scheduled to be lifted by 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 19.
