DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Fair officials say construction on Main Street in front of the fair shouldn’t be a major issue for fairgoers.
They tell 2 NEWS you will still be able to enter the Main Street gate to park.
Evette Moody with the Montgomery County Agricultural Society says many of the peak times for fair traffic will be at night and on the weekend when construction crews aren’t working.
They do suggest that you come from the north to get into the fair so you can turn right and not have to cross traffic.
The project that will run until the fall of 2015 is to widen Main Street but right now the road is down to two lanes instead of four.
Moody also says this won’t be the last year for the fair in Dayton. Plans are in the works to move the fair to Brookville and sell the current fairgrounds to Miller-Valentine, but Moody tells 2 NEWS the fair will be back in Dayton at least one more year in 2015.
The fair officially opens at Noon.
