CENTRAL POINT, Ore. -- VIP and Handicap Parking enters at Gate 1.

Peninger Road will be closed passed the Expo's Gate 1 throughout the festival and every day at 7PM, it will be completely closed off. That's not the only road closure that comes with Country Crossings.

"Upton Road is going to be a one lane road so it's going to have cones down the center of it. You're going to be able to go northbound only and you will not be able to drive southbound at all so people living in the area or visiting that area have to enter off of 10th street," said Jackson County Roads and Parks Director John Vial.

That's because that's the walking route for folks parked at Crater High School and Scenic Middle school. And unlike last year, there won't be any shuttles.

"This year they asked the school district to use shuttles but the school district couldn't figure out because it’s all volunteer based how to really effectively charge for that shuttle service and shuttles are expensive because of personnel you know and staffing and the cost of you know running those buses. So there wasn't anyone that was willing to take on that cost," said Central Point Public Works Director Matt Samitore.

Walking from Crater High, Scenic Middle School or Jewett Elementary will take you about 20 to 30 minutes according to Google Maps. So get your walking shoes ready for the walk there and the walk back.
