The Sangamon County Fair is now underway… and the sheriff’s office is asking you to consider using alternate routes to get there.
In a press release, Undersheriff Jack Campbell says on big concert nights… such as Friday’s upcoming appearance by country star Trace Adkins… traffic gets backed up on Interstate 72 at the New Berlin exit, creating a hazardous situation. Campbell recommends exiting instead at either the Curran exit from the east, or the Alexander exit from the west, and then taking back roads to New Berlin.
The fair runs through Sunday. Tonight (Wednesday), events include the Motocross competition and the Miss Sangamon County Fair pageant.
