It’s now an annual advisory issued by the Mansfield Division of Police. The INKcarceration Music and Tattoo Festival is taking place this weekend at the history Ohio State Reformatory, which will have an impact on area roads. This year, the Division is sharing the following:

Olivesburg Rd/ State Route 545 will be closed during the festival beginning at 8 a.m. on Friday, July 15 until 4 a.m. on Monday, July 18. There will be temporary road closures and traffic lane changes during each night for egress out of the parking lots off N. Main St/S.R. 13 and on 5th Avenue at U.S. 30.

Due to the high volume of traffic as well as the current construction on U.S. 30, traffic delays in the area surrounding the site of the event are expected to occur during this same period.

The areas most impacted by delays are anticipated on State Route 13 north of Harker Street to Harrington Memorial Road; State Route 545 between Wayne Street and Piper Road; E. Longview Ave between N. Main St. and Olivesburg Rd; and U.S. 30 between U.S. Route 42 and N. Trimble Road in both directions.

It is recommended that local motorists take an alternate route to avoid the expected traffic congestion in these areas over this weekend.
