Sept. 12– Darryl Worley’s Tennessee River Run, presented by Bumpus Harley-Davidson, has announced final plans for this week’s events.
Savannah City Manager Garry Welch says preparations for the concert will begin at 12 a.m. on Saturday.
"The stage will be located in the same spot it was last year," he said.
Major traffic throughout the day will be diverted to Water Street beginning at midnight as Main Street, from Williams Street to the cannon, will be closed off. Guinn Street to the concert site will also be closed off at 3 p.m. when the gates open.
"We will have signs on the Harrison-McGarity bridge and near McDonald’s directing travelers where to go," Welch said.
Downtown businesses are allowing concert-goers to park in their lots on the day of the concert. Handicap parking is available on the Water Street side courthouse parking lot.
Additional parking will be available at First Methodist Church, Goody’s and Tractor Supply. Welch said the city trolley will be providing shuttle service from these areas to the concert site.
Several days of activities will culminate with Ronnie Milsap’s and Worley’s performances in downtown Savannah on Saturday, Sept. 14. Special guests include Brandon Lay, Jami Grooms and Donica Knight.
