A triathlon will cause detours on Galveston's West End on Sunday morning.

The Island Girl Triathlon begins 8 a.m. Sunday.

The race includes a 200-yard swim, an 8-mile bike ride, and a 2-mile road course.

The race will affect traffic on Lockheed Drive, 83rd Street, Piper Street, and Stewart Road between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m.

83rd Street from Piper Street to Stewart Road will be closed to traffic during that time. Access to Scholes International Airport will be available at Terminal Drive. Cessna and Airport Boulevard can be used to access the hangars.

Stewart road will remain open during the race, but police officers will provide traffic control in some areas.
