BRAWLEY — As thousands flow into the city for the Cattle Call Rodeo and the week of events leading to it, local officials say the city is ready for the traffic.
Brawley police Lt. John Myers said the city has never had traffic problems from the swell of people who come into the city during Cattle Call week, which has its first event Saturday.
He added he does not expect problems this year.
He said during the rodeo weekend — Nov. 10 and 11 — police take the most precautions as people file in and out of Cattle Call Park and enjoy the Cattle Call parade.
To help the flow of traffic, police block the right-turn lane leading from Cattle Call Drive onto Highway 86 so vehicles can safely enter the highway in a steady stream.
