PONTIAC, MI – The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office is advising local residents and those attending the Woodward Dream Cruise of a temporary traffic control order, which will again be in place for the Woodward Dream Cruise on Saturday, August 17th, 2019.
It will restrict certain types of traffic on Woodward Avenue (M-1) from 9am to 9pm.
This temporary traffic control order prohibits commercial vehicles, vehicles with trailers, and any vehicle over 10,000 lbs. from driving on Woodward Avenue for the designated time period between 8 Mile and the loop in Pontiac. Those who violate the order will be immediately directed off Woodward Avenue and face being ticketed if they refuse to comply with the order.
“The Sheriff’s Office and our local law enforcement partners have a responsibility to keep attendees as safe as possible for this day,” said Sheriff Michael J. Bouchard. “This traffic control order will streamline the flow of traffic, enhance the cruise viewing experience, and add a layer of protection for those attending the event. Since we have implemented this order for the last few Dream Cruise events, the feedback has been positive from our citizens as some of the congestion has been alleviated making the day more enjoyable for spectators.”
Signage will be in place for the event and both the Sheriff’s Office and local law enforcement agencies are asking for the public’s help and assistance with obeying the traffic control order for the day of the Woodward Dream Cruise.
