Bringing North America’s largest cycling event to Elk Grove requires coordination and cooperation from the entire community. Set-up and race day activities will impact some of the normal traffic routes to and from school, limit access to some bus stops, and delay trash collection service to some Elk Grove residents. On behalf of the City Council and staff, we apologize for these anticipated inconveniences.

The following information is provided to help you anticipate planned closures, detours, and service changes between May 16 and 17.
