Rich Harvest traffic jam
Friday, August 21, 2009
SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – And you thought the play today was slow ... try driving in. There were plenty of horror stories from folks trying to make their way into the parking lot here at Rich Harvest Farms.
There are no shuttle buses. Everyone parks in a giant lot and then walks across the street. The problem, of course, is that thousands of fans come in on a one-lane road. Hello, traffic jam.
An LPGA media official just passed out alternate driving directors for media members and a press release from the Kane County Sheriff’s Department.
They’re bringing in 10 additional Illinois State Troopers tomorrow along with new signage. They’re also adding a secondary traffic route and waiving the $5 parking fee.
I’m sure the woman I saw get out of her car and scream at the parking lot volunteer last night will appreciate that gesture.
