Traf­fic pat­terns in ef­fect for Calvert’s fair week­end

The Calvert Recorder - - News -

For safety pur­poses, a special Calvert County Fair traf­fic plan will be in ef­fect 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Fri­day, Sept. 29, through Sun­day, Oct. 1. No ve­hi­cles will be al­lowed to turn left off Route 231 into the fair­grounds dur­ing those hours.

An al­ter­nate route would be to use Route 506 (Sixes Road) to Route 508 (Adelina Road) to Route 231, which would al­low a right turn into the fair­grounds.

Once the fair­ground park­ing lots are full, satel­lite park­ing with free shut­tle bus ser­vice will be avail­able at Hal­low­ing Point Park on Fri­day, Sept. 29 (Youth Day), and at the Col­lege of South­ern Mary­land on Satur­day and Sun­day. Spi­der Hall Farm will not be used as satel­lite park­ing this year.

Dur­ing rush-hour traf­fic, no ac­cess to the lots on the fair­grounds will be granted for a pe­riod of time in or­der to ease the flow of traf­fic on Route 231.

On Youth Day, par­ents may drop off and pick up chil­dren at Barstow Ele­men­tary School on J.W. Wil­liams Road from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Free bus ser­vice will be avail­able to trans­port chil­dren from Barstow Ele­men­tary to the fair­grounds’ main gate, and a po­lice of­fi­cer will be on duty at the school. The school is a drop-off and pickup lo­ca­tion only, not a park­ing lo­ca­tion.
