From the Sheriff's Desk

 

 

 

 

As Page County prepares to host the Cooter’s Last Stand event, we want to do our part to support Ben and Ms. Alma, make this a successful event for our community, and be a gracious host for those who will be traveling to our beautiful area to attend.

Sheriff Cubbage would like to offer the following advice, which will hopefully allow us to accomplish our goals:

·         Traffic on Route 211 Bypass, Fort Valley Road and Route 340 may be congested.  Expect delays and please remain aware of slowing or stopped traffic.

·         There will be no parking allowed on the shoulder, or median of Route 211 Bypass.  Vehicles parked illegally will be towed at the expense of the owner.

·         No pedestrian traffic will be allowed on, or crossing Route 211 Bypass.

·         If traveling to Page County for this event, please check the attached map for available parking areas and plan your trip accordingly.  Signage and officers will be in place for direction, but a pre-planned route will help traffic issues tremendously.

·         Individuals traveling from the Interstate 81 corridor are encouraged to utilize exit 269 (Shenandoah Caverns) if traveling south, and exit 257 (Mauzy) if traveling north.  Both exits will allow traffic onto Route 11 with access to Route 211.

·         If we experience inclement weather, or the need exists for overflow parking, space will be available at Page County Middle and High Schools (198 Panther Drive, Shenandoah, VA), Luray High School (243 Bulldog Drive, Luray, VA), Bulldog Field (740 US-340, Luray, VA) or Page Valley Fairgrounds (15 Fairlane Drive, Luray, VA).

·         Pursuant to the direction of Ben and Ms. Alma, there will be no consumption of alcohol permitted on the venue grounds, or in the surrounding parking areas.

·         The use of drones (unmanned aircraft) will not be permitted.

 

If you have any questions, or concerns, about your trip or the event management feel free to contact Major Phil Baker at (540) 743-1162.
