Independence Day Fireworks 2014

UPDATED:  Based on the weather forecast for July 4th, the Town of Fairfield Fireworks have been postponed until Saturday July 5th

Fairfield’s annual Independence Day fireworks display will be held on Saturday, July 5, 2014.

In the interest of public safety, the below listed streets will be posted with “No Parking Tow-Away” signs on July 5, 2014. Any vehicles parked in the designated tow zone areas after 6:00 PM on July 5th will be towed at the owner’s expense. This is a necessary action to provide an access to the beach area for fire apparatus and other emergency vehicles and to facilitate the movement of the anticipated large volume of traffic.

Streets to be posted as “No Parking Tow-Away” zones:

  • REEF ROAD
    • One Rod Hwy. to Fairfield Beach Rd.
  • FAIRFIELD BEACH RD
    • Beach Road to just west of Reef Road
  • OLDFIELD RD.
    • From Reef Rd. to Old Post Rd.
  • OLD POST RD.
  • LALLEY BLVD.
  • ROWLAND RD.
  • PENFIELD RD.
  • BEACH RD.
  • JUDSON RD
  • SOUTH BENSON RD.
  • ONE ROD HWY.
  • TURNEY RD.
  • SUNNIHOLME DR.

All streets in the beach area will be strictly enforced for parking violations and cars in violation will be towed at the owner’s expense.

At the start of the fireworks, approximately 9:15pm, streets leading from the beach area will be “one way” to the Post Road and NO TRAFFIC will be permitted to go south into the beach area until exiting traffic has cleared. (This time may vary slightly due to the starting time of the fireworks display. Typically the streets are closed 15 minutes after the start of the fireworks.) In addition, Rowland Road will be closed to all traffic to allow access for emergency vehicles if needed.

At the end of the fireworks no vehicles leaving the beach area will be able to turn onto Old Post or Old Field Roads. All vehicles must proceed to the Post Road. Cars using Reef Road will be directed to turn westbound on Post Road. Vehicles on South Benson Road will be able to turn right (eastbound) onto Post Road or go straight onto N. Benson Road. Cars using Beach Road or Unquowa Road will be directed across the Post Road and cannot turn onto Post Road in either direction. This is to reduce the cross traffic and make it safer for pedestrians and allow for quicker clearance of the beach area.
