YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. -- Yorktown Police are warning motorists to avoid the area of the Yorktown High School Campus on Route 202 Thursday evening from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. because of a large college fair.

This event draws hundreds of families from around the region and has caused heavy traffic delays in the past.

Police state parking on the campus will be very limited, which will likely be closed to traffic early this evening. Police have set up an off-site parking area, one half mile from the campus in FDR Park Lot No. 4.

Motorists should enter through the truck and bus entrance off of Route 202 opposite the Yorktown Volunteer Ambulance Corps. Shuttle bus service to and from the campus will be provided for the duration of the event with buses running every five minutes. Police officers and signage will assist motorists in locating the off-site lot.

Parking on roadway shoulders is prohibited and vehicles will be subject to tow.
