Traffic in Paso Robles will be congested for an hour and a half July 20, as some 50 head of cattle make their way through the city as the “kick off” for the Mid-State Fair.
Traffic will slow between 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., according to the Paso Robles Police Department. The cattle will arrive at the Paso Robles Event Center between 11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
The drive will begin at Golden Hills Auto Center at the corner of Highway 46 and Golden Hills Road, and cowboys will “guide” the cattle down Golden Hills Road to Union Road, cross North River Road to the 13th Street Bridge, and then turn right up Riverside Avenue to the Paso Robles Event Center.
The department will close intersections as the cattle move through the city.
Police are urging motorists to be patient, to expect delays, and to plan alternate routes.
