Alternate Routes for Sangamon Co. Fair in Effect
Alternate Routes for Sangamon Co. Fair in Effect

The drive to the Sangamon County Fair should be an easier one compared to years past.

This is the first time the sheriff’s department has set up alternate routes along fair to prevent traffic congestion on Interstate 72. Campbell says drivers coming from the west can take the Alexander exit.

Those leaving from Springfield can take Old Jacksonville road to New Berlin, and then take Link Road or the Pleasant Plains/ Waverly Blacktop.
