Sisters Quilt Show traffic plans outlined
Highway 20/Cascade Avenue will be again be closed to traffic from 6 am to 4 pm on Saturday, July 13 for the Sisters Quilt Show.
Westbound traffic (coming from Bend & Redmond) will be routed north on Locust St., west on Barclay Drive and south onto Larch St. for access to downtown and the show. The block of Main St. between Locust and Cedar will be closed to traffic and utilized by traffic control officials as a staging and communications area.
The Sisters Elementary School parking lot, located just east of Locust St. and accessed via Cascade Ave. E., will be designated for disabled parking. The parking lot just to the west of Locust St., between the Sisters Schools Administration building and City Hall will continue to be designated for disabled parking. A five passenger cart will shuttle between the center of town and the disabled parking lots throughout the day.
There will be no parking on Highway 20 east of Sisters, on either side of the road.
There is plenty of parking on the downtown streets of Sisters, and it is extremely dangerous to walk into town on Highway 20 with the high volume of traffic. There will also be no parking on Locust St., north of town. Again, high volumes of traffic make that an unsafe place to park and walk into Sisters.
Parking is available and free to the public on the city streets of Sisters. Please do not block driveways or alleys and head in parking is encouraged (vs. parallel parking).
Free parking and a free shuttle is available at Sisters High School in the Parks & Recreation side of the parking lot at 1700 McKinney Butte Rd. Signs will direct you to that location. The shuttle, provided by the Sisters Lacrosse Team, runs continuously from 9:00 am to 5 pm.
