Memorial Highway Partially Closed – CHANGE FROM PREVIOUS YEARS
A major change this year is that Memorial Hwy will NOT be totally closed for the parade. Memorial Hwy will be closed to eastbound traffic at 7:00 AM from East Main St to the intersection of 3rd St SE/BisMan Ave. One lane will be open for westbound traffic throughout the parade time. This westbound traffic will be able to go northbound onto Mandan Ave from Memorial Hwy or east onto I-94.
Parade Viewing on Memorial Hwy- CHANGE FROM PREVIOUS YEARS
People will not be allowed to sit/stand on the north side of Memorial Hwy for viewing due to the open traffic lane.
Viewing will be allowed on the south side of Memorial Hwy. Access to the south side of Memorial Hwy after 7:00 AM on July 4th will be off of 3rd St SE from 24th Ave SE or Riverwood Dr. No traffic will be allowed into this area from Memorial Hwy after 7:00 AM.
Please remember to stay at the edge of the roadway as the parade will be traveling along this route.
The Classic Car Parade will start at approximately 10:00 AM followed by the Grand Parade at 10:10 AM. The Classic Car Parade will leave Midway Lanes on Memorial Hwy and travel westbound to Main. The Grand Parade will start at Dacotah Centennial Park on Memorial Highway and proceed to Main Street. After the parade begins, traveling to the North and/or South in Mandan will be extremely difficult with long delays.
Traffic in bound from I-94 into Mandan onto East Main St will be closed at 7:00 am.

If you need to go south of Mandan for any reason please arrange your travel plans to do so prior to 9:40 AM to avoid any time delays or inconvenience.
