Astoria Regatta Grand Land Parade / Expect traffic disruptions
The Astoria Police Department is issuing a reminder that the Astoria Regatta Association Grand Land Parade begins at 12:00 P.M. on Saturday August 12th 2017. Traffic will be disrupted through the downtown core beginning at about 8:00 A.M.
At 8:30 A.M. Exchange Street will be closed between 23rd and 16th. The Hospital, its urgent care and the Park Medical Building will be accessible from Marine Drive at 20th, 21st, and 23rd.
Exchange and Duane between 17th and 9th will have no on street parking on Saturday until the parade ends. The no parking areas will be signed and any vehicle parked at those locations will be removed by a tow truck. The owner will be responsible for the tow fees.
At about 10:30 a.m. all streets that travel north or south (the number streets) will be closed between Commercial Street and Franklin Street between 17th and 8th. These traffic disruptions will last until the parade had ended and the street has been swept.
8th street will remain open during the entire event. 16th street will remain open until 11:30 A.M.
Highway 30 will remain open but may experience delays due to pedestrian traffic and floats moving to the disband area. Traffic needing to get to or from the South slope of Astoria should use unaffected, alternate routes.
Deputy Chief Eric Halverson said, “We appreciate the community’s patience in dealing with the traffic disruptions that occur during the parade each year. Our goal is to limit the disruptions for the motoring public, while providing a safe route for people to view the procession.”
