Heavy Fourth of July traffic could cause gridlock on the Northern State, Sagtikos and Sunken Meadow parkways, the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation said Wednesday in a traffic advisory.

Prior years' attendance at Sunken Meadow State Park has caused morning and afternoon gridlock and serious traffic disruptions, the agency said in a news release.
