Convoy expected in Allegany County Friday afternoon

March 2nd, 2022 by WCBC Radio

Over the past week, Law Enforcement has been monitoring several truck convoys en route to the Washington DC area.  There is a potential that the People’s Convoy will travel through Allegany County by way of eastbound lanes of I68 and if so, it could disrupt traffic in our area.

The information that the sheriff's department has now is that the convoy is estimated at 40 miles in length and contains over 2500 vehicles.  If this convoy enters Allegany County it would most likely occur between 12:00pm and 4:00pm, Friday March 4th.  The Sheriff’s Office would recommend that you consider this in your travel plans.  I would also recommend that you also remain off  I68, during these times, to avoid significant disruption to your travel.

The Allegany County Sheriff’s Office has been working on this matter with the Maryland State Police, Cumberland City Police and Frostburg City Police.  We will try to provide updated information, by way of social media and our ACSO Mobile APP as it becomes available to us.  You can download our APP using the following link
