The Arizona Department of Transportation has informed Sedona residents and vistors that drivers should expect traffic delays on State Route 89A on Monday, March 21, approaching Fort Tuthill County Park near Flagstaff.
This is due to a rally being held by Democratic presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders [I-Vt.] at the Fort Tuthill Amphitheater.
Depending on the delay northbound, traffic may begin to get backed up down State Route 89A. ADOT advises drivers heading to Flagstaff from Sedona, the Village of Oak Creek and the Verde Valley to detour Interstate 17 and stay in the left lanes as they approach Flagstaff to avoid the traffic backup.
Fort Tuthill County Park will open doors at 5 p.m. and the event starts at 8 p.m. This rally is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required, but RSVPs are strongly encouraged. Admission is first-come, first-served. The presidential hopeful will discuss getting big money out of politics, his plan to make public colleges and universities tuition-free, combating climate change and ensuring universal health care, according to a media release from his campaign.
For security reasons, please do not bring bags and limit what you bring to small, personal items like keys and cell phones. Weapons, sharp objects, chairs, and signs or banners on sticks will not be allowed through security. Parking is available on-site.
Drivers should also be wary of rally attendees parking along the side of the road and walking to the event. Drive slow in the area especially as darkness falls.
