Due to the activities and the increased number of people in the city, traffic will move slower, particularly when entering and exiting the Riverfest & Melaleuca Freedom Celebration fireworks at Snake River Landing.
Residents and guests are asked to experience patience. Drivers should slow down, relax, concentrate, watch for pedestrians and bicyclists, and obey all traffic laws, special holiday parking and traffic restrictions.
More than 150,000 spectators are expected to attend the event. Have the mindset going to the event that it will take time to exit the area following the fireworks display, and then plan accordingly. Traffic engineers have created plans at each intersection in the area to move the most amount of people out using the safest routes possible. Please obey all traffic control personnel and directional signage. Thank you for your patience!
