Sylvania Township police have developed a traffic pattern for those leaving the fireworks on July 3 to most efficiently get everyone home from the display.
Police Chief Paul Long said officers know that in some individual cases the established route might take slightly longer, but overall following the established procedure is the best way to clear the area.
He added that motorists should pay attention to barricades and the directions signaled by police officers. Police from Sylvania Township and the city of Sylvania will be on duty to help with traffic
Sylvania-Metamora Road will remain a two-way street after the fireworks. Mitchaw Road will be one-way south from Sylvania-Metamora to Sylvania Avenue. Those who head east on Sylvania must turn south onto Herr Road until they reach the two-way traffic of Central Avenue.
There will be no traffic allowed on Sylvania Avenue between Centennial and Herr, except for vehicles between Mitchaw and Herr.
Brint Road will also be closed from Centennial to Mitchaw.
For those who park north of Holland-Sylvania/Erie Street, Centennial will be northbound only, from there to the Michigan state line. Anyone driving north on Centennial from Brint Road will have to turn east when they reach Little Road.
For those parking south of Sylvania-Metamora/Erie Street, Centennial will be southbound from that roadway to Little Road where two-way traffic will resume.
