Highway 371 traffic will be single lane at Gull Lake to allow for a shuttle bus/vehicle drop off site. Watch for pedestrian traffic on shoulders prior to and after the event. Law enforcement will be controlling traffic in the area.
Contest participants and spectators are encouraged to use the shuttle service from BIR north of Baxter.
Motorists are urged to drive with caution, watch for signs and be prepared for sudden stops. For updated statewide traffic, construction, weather and
