The officers are instructed to divert the traffic to Interstate 75 to keep the residential and commercial streets open for normal traffic flow.
The traffic will get dicey at a few points in the day, officials said. There’s just no way to avoid backups when thousands of vehicles descend on the same stretch of roadway at the same time, according to the police department.
The city advises travelers to leave early, give plenty of time for their travels and make sure to follow the signs and instructions advised by the police officers.
The city does advise that all normal businesses will be open, just expect heavy delays with the traffic on Northwoods Boulevard and Dixie Drive.
For information on road closures, contact Lt. Swafford at (937) 415-2262.
