Turlock City Council will once again consider closing several streets in Downtown to allow for the first-ever Turlock Criterium bicycle race on Tuesday evening. Last meeting, Council had the opportunity to approve the closure of portions of W.

However, after nearly an hour long debate between supporters and opponents, Council elected to give the race director Mitch Boehs two weeks to clear up logistics.
