G8 Summit Road Disruptions in Maryland on May 17-19 for Interstate 270 & Interstate 70
Notice from the Kentlands Neighborhood Watch
The G8 summit is scheduled for this weekend. This means that the 8 largest countries and an additional list of emerging countries will have representatives at the event held at Camp David. What this means is an extreme show of force when it comes to police and security measures. It also means "Occupiers" such as the campers we witnessed on the news in New York and our National Mall will be possibly hanging out. It also creates an opportunity for general crime associated with diverted resources and a high volume of people/vehicles. This event was originally planned for Chicago, but moved recently moved to Camp David, under the assumption that it would be more secure. Host cities are usually compensated for these events. Thurmont is not. There will be police support from Montgomery County. It could get interesting.
To further complicate matters, several schools have their proms/formals this coming Friday in Frederick. There are a few festivals as well. School has been shut down for Friday in Frederick County.
Please plan ahead regarding your appointments. I suggest being very flexible on Friday and Saturday-attempt to stay off the roads.
Potential Road Disruptions on May 17-19
The United States will host the Group of Eight (G8) world leaders at Camp David on May 18-19. We have learned from the Maryland State Police that this will result in traffic disruptions on several major roads, including intermittent road closures on Interstate 270, Interstate 70 and U.S. Route 15 North. Disruptions will occur on May 17 during dry run exercises and on May 18-19 during the event.
Please provide a little more time for travel to and from work these days and/or work with your manager on alternate work arrangements.
