This morning's paper carried a notice of an emergency drill at 11019 Route 14, which is the address of Turning Point (although Turning Point was not mentioned in the notice).
A Crystal Lake resident told me today that she had felt great concern as she passed Turning Point and saw all the emergency vehicles there. It was only at the end of the drill zone that she saw a roadside sign about the practice taking place. She didn't give me the wording on the sign.
Were there warning signs for east- and westbound before reaching Turning Point to alert drivers that it was only a drill that was in progress?
If so, that's evidence of considerate planning for those passing by, so that drivers don't extensively rubber-neck the scene as they pass.
If not, well, that'll be a story for another day.
Did anyone pass by and see any warning signs as you approached Turning Point?
