Heavy traffic expected in Fairburn for Oct. 4 festival

Fairburn Police want residents of Fayette and Coweta counties to be aware of traffic issues which will be present at the Fairburn Fall Festival in the downtown area on Oct. 4.

The festival starts with a parade that begins at 9:30 a.m. A large section of U.S. Hwy. 29 / West Broad Street through downtown will be closed off for the parade. This effectively blocks anyone traveling on Ga. Highway 92 north from Fayette County.

There are several alternates available, the easiest probably being Ga. Highway 138 from Fayette County through Fairburn to completely avoid the downtown area. Read More»
