  • Long Creek Road @ Larkin Road
  • Long Creek Road @ South Frontage Road - US 80
  • East Fork Road @ South Frontage Road - US 80
  • East Fork Road @ North Frontage Road - US 80

Officers will be working traffic control from approximately 7 a.m. - 11 a.m. in the areas listed above.


The impact should be minimal as this race will move quickly and riders will be in packs, so the stoppage of traffic will be for short periods of time. Please exercise caution if you plan to travel through any of these areas.

Mosquito dunks

With all of the recent rain we have had, standing water may still be an issue on your property and can attract mosquitos. Mosquito dunks are available at Town Hall at no cost to you.


As the weather begins to warm up and mosquito season reaches it's peak, health officials urge the public to take protective measures by utilizing the ‘4Ds’ to reduce the risk of West Nile virus:

  • DEET - All Day, Every Day: Whenever outside, use FDA approved insect repellents that contain DEET, picaridin or lemon-eucalyptus oil.
  • DRESS: Wear long, loose fitting, light-colored clothing when going outdoors.
  • DRAIN: All areas of standing water in or around your home where mosquitoes can lay their eggs.
  • DAWN, DAY & DUSK: Limit your time outside as mosquitoes will bite at any time - day or night.
