Traffic Trouble Could Be Possible

The Michigan State Police say there could be a major increase in traffic in that area.
MSP Lt. Michelle Robinson told WZZM 13 

"I would say at least four times the amount of vehicles, they do expect, all tickets were sold."


How Are They Dealing With The Increase In Traffic

The Michigan State Police are encouraging travelers on 31 to stay in the left-hand lane if they aren't coming to the festival. They have also blocked off several roads in the area to keep traffic flowing.

Don't Follow Your GPS

MSP Lt. Michelle Robinson also told WZZM 13 that people going to the concert are asked to NOT follow their GPS

 "We ask that anybody that is coming to attend the festival, follow the map that is given to you by the festival, Don't try to rely on your GPS, that may take you out of the way."
