– If you view the fireworks from north of the Sheboygan River and have to get back to the south side, we suggest leaving west on Erie or Superior Avenues, and using 14th Street or Taylor Drive to go south.
– If you view the fireworks from south of the Sheboygan River and have to get back to the north side, we suggest turning west on Georgia Avenue or Broadway Avenue to reach South Business Drive and turn north.
Officers will be manning the traffic lights on 14th Street and numerous other intersections to facilitate the movement of traffic away from the lakefront. Please remember that thousands of vehicles will be attempting to leave the lakefront area at the same time, and there is only so much space on the streets to accommodate the increase in volume. Please be patient, and watch for pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Everyone is encouraged to walk or use a bicycle if practical.
