Frankfort, IN –Frankfort Police Department will be working diligently on July 4 to ensure the safety of all pedestrians and drivers attending the TPA Park July 4 Festival.
The Police Department will have a command post at the Rock House just east of the concession stands. Officers will be posted at various intersections near the park to facilitate the flow of traffic out of the park following the fireworks display. Certain intersections will have traffic restrictions to ensure the safety of drivers and pedestrians.
Please note the following changes in traffic patterns:
- Washington Avenue will be closed from Catterlin Street to Kelley Avenue due to road construction.
- Burlington Avenue will be open to Washington Avenue until 10 p.m. Once the fireworks begin, Burlington Avenue will be closed to allow the safe and efficient exit of vehicles from the park.
- Vehicles will not be able to enter the park via Kyger Street. This entrance can only be used to access the golf course, drop off supplies to vendors, or park along N. Park Drive. No traffic will be allowed down Izaak Walton Drive.
Locations marked “no parking” indicate areas at risk of flammable firework debris falling from the sky. Please obey these signs to avoid injury or damage to vehicles. Citations will be issued for violators parking in these areas. As a reminder, there will be no fireworks allowed at the TPA Park other than those provided by the Jaycees.
Following the fireworks display, traffic on Burlington Ave will be directed south to County Road 100 where drivers will be able to proceed west or east on 100 N. Officers will also be stationed at State Rd 75 and 100 E/Maish Road to keep traffic flowing. Drivers will be able to turn north or south on State Rd 75 and 100 E/Maish Road.
