Traffic Plan/ Lane closures. A state patrol vehicle will be positioned on NE Frontage road and Richards Lake Road. Also, there will be a certified flagger on E CR56 and NE Frontage Road to direct traffic. Lanes will be open when race is open. The "yellow line rule" will be in effect (racers must stay to the right of the yellow line, strictly enforced by lead moto referee.

4. Date Submitted: 03/12/2014
There are no road closures. Certified flagger and state trooper will be positioned in the places I mentioned last app update submission. No County personnel will be necessary for this event.

I have never had to submit a "certified" road closure plan, nor have any county personnel ever worked this event. This is how I've done it every year for 5 years, and it's never been an issue.

I don't know how to make the traffic plan anymore elaborate than it already is.If this is an issue, than I will need some guidance on how to solve this issue.

5. Date Submitted: 03/19/2014
Can I please get the email and phone number of the lieutenant that needs to see a certified traffic plan. I am working on getting a certified traffic controller, but need to know exactly what you need.


6. Date Submitted: 03/21/2014
Please see the certified traffic plan made up by certified traffic controller Chris Rood. Thanks.
