CARMI, Ill. - Corn Day 2018 (Friday evening, October 12 to Saturday evening, Oct. 13) is coming up, and with that, Police Chief Jason Carter has released info on traffic patterns and road closures that will impact how you travel if you routinely go through Carmi.

Carter advises that Church Street between Main and Cherry Street will be blocked beginning around 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 11, to allow for carnival rides to be set up. Walnut Street between Main and Cherry Street will also be partially blocked beginning Thursday night to allow for the setup of the Main Stage on Friday Morning.

The set traffic detour pattern will be in place starting at 3 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12. After 3 p.m., vendors will begin setting up on Main Street. Vendors will NOT be allowed to set up prior to 3 p.m. due to state regulations and traffic hazards. Any vehicles parked on Main between Main Cross and Jessup Street after 3 p.m. Friday are subject to being towed at the owner's expense. No admittance is allowed during this time to any traffic other than vendors setting up.

The detour traffic pattern will be the same as years past, with the detour being from East Main Street to Locust, onto Cherry Street, and then onto Oak Street. Any vehicles parked along the detour route on Locust and Cherry after 3 p.m. Friday are subject to being towed at the owner's expense.

These routes will be visibly marked with "no parking" signs and "detour route" signs.

This detour will be in place until approximately 2 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 13. Please feel free to call the Carmi Police Department at 618-382-4633 with any questions regarding the established routes.

The parade begins at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13. At that time, all traffic will be diverted at Main onto Fairground Road and then onto Oak Street for the detour around Main until such time as the parade is over.

Please remember that alcohol is not allowed to be taken outside of the bar establishments unless there is a secured area that is not accessible to the general public. Further, NO alcohol is allowed in or adjacent to any street or alley or on or adjacent to the public sidewalks. This will be monitored and enforced with citations issued if necessary.

Carter advises everyone to please be responsible and mindful of their actions, and he and his department express their wishes for all in attendance to have a safe and enjoyable 2018 Corn Day!
