JACKSON, MO (KFVS) - The Missouri Department of Transportation said visitors and veterans will be out in full force along Route 61 Labor Day weekend in search of bargains at the 61-Mile Yard Sale from Bloomsdale to Jackson, Mo.
MoDOT would like to remind you the greatest savings of the event could be a life.
"It's a fun weekend that people look forward to each year," said Traffic Engineer Craig Compas, "but we want people to remember that there's more traffic and more congestion along Route 61 this weekend than any other and drivers need to keep that in mind."
MoDOT said it will do its part to bring the safety message to the forefront. Message boards will be in place along the route to alert drivers of the unusual traffic patterns and promote safe driving.
