July 4 traffic advisory issued for Sunken Meadow State Park

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.

Motorists are urged to consider other routes for entering Sunken Meadow State Park between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. July 4.

The agency also said parking is not permitted on the roadways, the center median or grassy shoulder areas, except for short-term emergencies.
