With all the activities in Jackson for Independence Day, traffic could be a bit challenging at time. Sergeant Cole Nethercott of the Jackson Police Department says officers plan to be on hand to assist in keeping the traffic flow going. They will be on hand to help guide traffic around the parade route and to help clear the area around Alpine Field after Music in the Hole. Nethercott suggests for the sake of simplicity, those attending Music in the Hole on the south side of town may wish to park at the town’s parking garage or other parking areas in town and take the START Bus shuttle to the event. Especially with the fire danger as high as it is, Nethercott says police will be watching for the launching of illegal personal fireworks. Those caught, he says may find themselves with a fine in addition to having their fireworks confiscated. Nethercott also reminds revelers that Jackson has an ordinance prohibiting people having alcoholic beverages in public places.
