Commercial Vehicles and Trailers Banned on Woodward During Dream Cruise

(Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, Aug. 13, 2018)

Ferndale, Pleasant Ridge, Huntington Woods, Royal Oak, Berkley, Birmingham, Bloomfield Twp, Pontiac, MI – The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office is advising local residents and those attending the Woodward Dream Cruise of a temporary traffic control order, which will be in place for Dream Cruise on Saturday, August 18th. It will restrict certain types of traffic on Woodward Avenue (M-1) from 9am to 9pm.

This temporary traffic control order will prohibit commercial vehicles, vehicles with trailers, and any vehicle over 10,000 lbs. from driving on Woodward Avenue for the designated time period between 8 Mile and the loop in Pontiac. Those who violate the order will be immediately directed off Woodward Avenue and face being ticketed if they refuse to comply with the order.

“The Sheriff’s Office and our local law enforcement partners who are tasked with maintaining the safety and security of the Woodward Dream Cruise have again asked for this traffic control order to be in place for the day,” said Sheriff Michael J. Bouchard. “This traffic control order will streamline the flow of traffic, enhance the cruise viewing experience, and add a layer of protection for those attending the event. After its implementation last year, our feedback was very positive from attendees and it helped to reduce unnecessary congestion.”

Signage will be in place for the event and both the Sheriff’s Office and local law enforcement agencies are asking for the public’s help and assistance with obeying the traffic control order for the day of the Woodward Dream Cruise.
