Subject: Road Closures and Traffic Delays Expected/INKcarceration Festival
The Mansfield Division of Police would like to remind the community of the likelihood of road closures and traffic delays due to this weekend’s “INKcarceration Music and Tattoo Festival” which is being held at the historic Ohio State Reformatory located at 100 Reformatory Road.
Olivesburg Rd/ State Route 545 will be closed during the festival beginning at 8:00 AM on Friday, July 15th until 4:00 AM on Monday, July 18th. There will be temporary road closures and traffic lane changes during each night for egress out of the parking lots off of N. Main St/S.R. 13 and on 5th Ave at U.S. 30. Due to the high volume of traffic as well as the current construction on U.S. Route 30, traffic delays in the area surrounding the site of the event is expected to occur during this same time period.
The areas most impacted by delays are expected to be State Route 13 north of Harker St to Harrington Memorial Rd; State Route 545 between Wayne Street and Piper Road; E. Longview Ave between N. Main St. and Olivesburg Rd; and U.S. 30 between U.S. Route 42 and N. Trimble Road in both directions. It is recommended that local motorists take an alternate route to avoid the expected traffic congestion in these areas over this weekend.
