Batavia High School's homecoming parade route has been changed due to construction on West Wilson Street in the downtown area.

Parade units will begin staging at 5 p.m. Wednesday in the student lot at the high school off West Wilson Street. The parade will start at 5:30 p.m. and proceed east on West Wilson to Lincoln Street, turn right onto southbound Lincoln to Main Street, and turn right onto westbound Main, ending at the high school parking lot at Main and Millview Drive.

The parade will impact vehicle traffic on all roads that intersect the parade route. West Wilson, First and Main streets will all be closed at South Batavia Avenue (Route 31) to westbound vehicle traffic during the parade. Vehicle traffic coming eastbound on West Wilson Street from Randall Road will be detoured to Western Avenue, and vehicle traffic coming eastbound on Main Street from Randall Road will be detoured onto Millview Drive.

The following detour routes should be used to avoid parade event area. Anyone heading to Randall Road from the downtown area should use McKee Street, just north of West Wilson Street, off Route 31. Drivers coming from the south on Route 31 can use Morton Street, turn right onto Millview Drive, then to Main Street to get to Randall Road.

The parade will last about one hour.

For additional information, call the police department at (630) 454-2000.
