Mill Creek Regional Park Traffic Exiting Plan

Please note the following flow of traffic on Highway 24 for this event.

Starting at 8:45PM, no traffic will be allowed down Highway 24 from the 301Bypass to the recycling center just past the main entrance to Mill Creek Regional Park.  From 9:30PM until 10:30PM, traffic will exit out of the main entrance of the park using both lanes.  The right lane will be directed right or left onto Highway 24; the left lane will be directed left onto Highway 24.  Traffic exiting from residences and businesses across Highway 24 from Mill Creek Regional Park will only be allowed to turn right (west) onto Highway 24.  Both lanes of Highway 24 will go straight to the by-pass.  The right lane of Highway 24 will be allowed to travel right onto the by-pass or straight on Highway 24/East Main.  The left lane of Highway 24 will be directed left onto the by-pass.

Traffic exiting out of the back exit at Mill Creek will turn right onto Brannen Road and then left onto Beasley Road to Highway 80. The back entrance to Mill Creek Park will be used for EXITING ONLY.

Once all cars have exited from Mill Creek Regional Park traffic from Mill Creek Elementary will be directed right onto Beasley Road to Highway 80.  Traffic exiting from Bible Baptist, Trinity Church, and Barnes Lumber will be directed right onto Highway 24 to the by-pass for access to Highways 80 and 301.

Exiting preference will be given to people parked in designated areas within Mill Creek Regional Park.

Any traffic wishing to travel down Hwy 24 after 8:45pm will be rerouted to Hwy 80 east to Burkhalter Road where you will turn left and travel down to Zettwell Road and turn left again. This will take you back to Hwy 24 on the opposite side of Mill Creek Regional Park.

This plan has been created for your safety with the expertise of local law enforcement and Georgia highway patrol. Be safe.

Starting at 6:30PM, the Back Exit will be used for EXIT ONLY.  Traffic will be stopped at the intersection of Brannen and Beasley and only residents will be allowed to turn down Brannen Road.
