Lexington officials get ready for John Deere-sponsored equestrian event
Posted by Green Fun Store on 9/10/2010
The Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games are being held for the first time in the U.S. at the Kentucky Horse Park. Lexington Mayor Jim Newberry said officials have been getting ready for the event for four years.
"Now it's almost time to put our plans into action," Newberry said.
To help guide traffic around the park, more than 115 roadway signs will be placed in the area. That includes changeable message boards and directional placards that will direct attendants to the correct parking entrances and exit ramps.
Local media are also taking part to help guide traffic, as newspaper, television and radio outlets will provide traffic information throughout the time the games are in the area. Law enforcement representatives will be on hand to assist with traffic flow.
Opening ceremonies for the games are scheduled for September 25, and competitions will be held through October 10. John Deere is one of the official sponsors for the equestrian tournament, and the company's equipment will be used throughout.
