Pioneer Drive Will Open for Festival

Road project is nowhere near complete, but road crews will make way for crowds, traffic as the Muskego Community Festival nears, and schedule provides plenty to do.

Pioneer Drive Will Open for Festival

One of Muskego's road projects has seen Pioneer Drive off limits for through traffic since June, but even though road crews won't be finished with the job, city officials confirm there will be access during the Muskego Community Festival.

Adam Trzebiatowski with the city planner's office said that road crews will suspend work during the festival, which runs Thursday, August 23 to Sunday, August 26. Pedestrians and vehicles will be able to travel through the area, and some limited shoulder parking will be available.

Additional parking is also available on the City Hall grounds, along Racine Avenue, and at the Old Settlement Centre adjacent to the grounds.

Despite the construction, events will still provide plenty for festival goers to enjoy over its four-day run. Here is a run down of the scheduled events:
