Traffic Alert for Labor Day Weekend During the NHRA U.S. Nationals

In an effort to get spectators out of Lucas Oil Raceway in a safe and efficient manner, all vehicular traffic will be routed both west to Ronald Reagan Parkway and east to I-465.

Exceptions to this will be any eastbound traffic leaving via County Road 300 North (W. 30th Street), which will be routed south on Raceway Road.

This traffic pattern will be enforced at the conclusion of race activities daily. Heavier traffic days will be Friday through Monday of Labor Day weekend.

The following are estimated times of when departing traffic will start. Please expect delays while traveling in the area during these times:

FRIDAY at 8:45 p.m. SATURDAY at 6:30 p.m. SUNDAY at 7:00 p.m. MONDAY at 4:30 p.m.

Traffic coming into the area will be heavy throughout each day of the U.S. Nationals. Local law enforcement asks you to avoid the area during the times listed if you can.

The Clermont Police Department wishes everyone a safe and fun-filled Labor Day Weekend.

As we approach Independence Day celebrations, please remember our fireworks ordinances are in effect and will be enforced.

Fireworks are allowed from 5 p.m. to two hours after sunset on June 28 through July 3 and July 5 through July 9. They are permissible from 10 a.m. to midnight on July 4.

You must be 18 or older to purchase fireworks.

An adult must be present for children to use any kind of fireworks.

Use of fireworks is limited to your own property, the property of someone who has approved your fireworks fun, or a location designated specifically for the use of consumer fireworks.

Firework Safety Tips

  • Never allow children to play with or ignite fireworks.

  • Use extreme caution when lighting fireworks in the wind.

  • Keep spectators where the wind is blowing away from them.

  • Never smoke or consume alcohol when lighting fireworks.

  • Store fireworks in a cool, dry place away from the reach of children.

  • Steer clear of others setting off fireworks. Never aim, point, or throw fireworks.

  • Do not attempt to make or alter any fireworks or firework devices.

  • Always have a fire extinguisher or water supply, such as a hose or bucket of water, nearby.

  • Only light one firework at a time, and never attempt to re-light or fix a “dud” firework.

  • Think about pets. Animals have sensitive ears and can be very frightened or stressed by firework sounds. Be aware of both your pets and your neighbors' pets.

Be safe this 4th of July!
