(KBSI) – The 100-Mile Yard Sale begins Memorial Day weekend along Highway 25 in Missouri.

Visitors and residents will be out in full force along Route 25 Memorial Day weekend in search of bargains at the 100-Mile Yard Sale, but MoDOT wants you to remember the greatest savings of the event could be a life.

“It’s a fun weekend that people look forward to each year,” says Traffic Engineer Craig Compas with the Missouri Department of Transportation, “but we want people to remember that there’s more traffic and more congestion along Route 25 this weekend than any other and drivers need to keep that in mind.”

Message boards will be placed along the route to alert drivers of the unusual traffic patterns and promote safe driving.

Compas warns drivers to be alert and aware of their surroundings. Be aware of sudden stops and look for pedestrian traffic.

“There is an increase in traffic, including large truck traffic, between the City of Jackson and the Route AB in Cape Girardeau County due to the Diverging Diamond Interchange construction,” Compas said. “While we want everyone to enjoy themselves, we ask that people also be as safe as possible.”
