The Russells Point and Washington Township Police Departments will be combining efforts throughout the village and northern Washington Township Saturday.
Officers will focus on traffic enforcement, particularly drunk drivers.
Russells Point Police Chief Joe Freyhof (pictured) and Washington Township Police Chief Rick Core say authorities are working to improve traffic flow after the fireworks by making some temporary changes, including:
East and westbound stop signs at the intersections along Main Street/SR 366 will be covered to allow a free flow of traffic, keeping in mind the 25 mph speed limit;
The following access points from US 33 to Main Street will be closed to both incoming and outgoing traffic at the conclusion of the fireworks:
Sunnyside Avenue (Donut Shop); Clermont Street (Family Dollar); SR 708 north of US 33 (Huntington Bank); and Lincoln Boulevard (The Wedge);
The traffic lights along US 33 at the SR 708 and TR 239 intersections will be set to flash yellow for east and westbound traffic and red to north and southbound traffic.
Drivers can gain access to US 33 from roadways west of Russells Point near Lakeview and east of Russells Point from CR 94 and on toward Huntsville. Intersections through Russells Point are closed due to the fact they can only handle one to two vehicles before obstructing traffic flow.
