Lee Police Announce Founders Weekend Temporary Road Closures
The Lee Police Department would like to remind everyone planning to attend Taste of Lee on Friday evening, that Main Street will be closed to vehicular traffic by 3:30pm from the Town Park to Franklin Street. Any vehicles parked along this stretch of Main Street after 3:30 on Friday will need to remain there until after Taste of Lee ends around 8:00PM, for the safety of the pedestrians and vendors who will line Main Street for this popular event.
On Saturday morning, motorists are asked to keep in mind that Main Street to Canal Street will again be closed for the Hometown Parade that begins at 10:00 AM. By the start of the 10:00am parade, police will close the route from Fuller to Summer and Laurel until the completion of the parade.
Authorities and officials from the Lee Chamber of Commerce ask for your understanding and cooperation as we offer Founders Weekend activities to commemorate the Town’s incorporation 239 years ago — in 1777. Thank you!
