ROTHBURY — The Hart post of the Michigan State Police is reminding Oceana County residents that traffic will be heavy on US 31 this Wednesday, June 20, and next Wednesday, June 27, due to people arriving at the Electric Forest Festival.

There will be “significant increases” of northbound festival traffic using exits 136 – Winston Road and 140 – Stony Lake Road/M 20 arriving at the festival, said Lt. Matt Kanitz, assistant post commander.

“These delays may possibly extend into the following day,” Kanitz said. “Residents should consider alternate routes to avoid backups and delays.”

“On Monday, June 25, and Monday, July 2, there will again be significant amounts of (southbound) traffic leaving the festival that could cause delays in those same areas. Potential traffic impacts will start early to mid-morning and continue all day on the Wednesday arrival days and begin at daylight and continue until early afternoon on those consecutive Mondays,” he said.
