The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) Troop C – Grand Island will provide traffic control and special enforcement operations surrounding Husker Harvest Days in Hall County.

During the event, which runs from September 11-13, troopers will have an increased presence working to reduce the potential for serious injury and fatality crashes.

“Husker Harvest Days always brings great crowds to the area,” said Captain Jeromy McCoy, Commander – Troop C. “Our troopers will be working with local law enforcement to help traffic flow and safety with the large increase of vehicles on the road.”

In an effort to reduce congestion and expedite traffic flow, troopers will provide traffic control efforts throughout the three-day event. Portions of Husker Highway, the road leading to the show, may be turned into a one-way road at times to allow for better traffic flow.

Motorists are asked to maintain adequate following distance to allow themselves plenty of time to react to changing conditions and to remain alert for law enforcement personnel directing traffic.

Traffic enforcement assistance will be provided by the Nebraska State Patrol, Nebraska Department of Transportation, Hall County Roads Department, Hall County Sheriff’s Office, Hall County Sheriff’s Posse, and the Husker Harvest Days Staff.
