At dusk, Woodstock will offer up its annual fireworks display in the area of Woodstock Square Avenue. It is anticipated that there will be a high volume of vehicular traffic on the roads associated with the event. At the conclusion of the fireworks show, the Woodstock Police Department will direct motorists to comply with the following instructions:
- All traffic parked south of Georgia Highway 92 (including at the Super Target, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Lowe’s, Molly Lane and Woodstock Square Avenue) will be directed to turn right onto Highway 92 and travel east.
- All traffic parked north of Highway 92 (including at The Home Depot, Big Lots, Hennessey Honda and IHOP) will be directed to turn right onto Highway 92 and travel west.
- No left turns or U-turns will be permitted on Highway 92 during or after the scheduled event until the streets and parking lots are clear.
Sign boards will be present at exits to assist motorists with direction of travel. Motorists are reminded to drive with caution around pedestrians, comply with uniformed police officers directing traffic and allow for extra travel time to and from the event.
The men and women of the Woodstock Police Department want to wish everyone a safe July 4.
