The collapse of a bridge on I-85 northbound just south of Ga. 400 near Piedmont Road. Expect will result in major delays traveling both ways along I-85 for the remainder of the lacrosse season.
ALL REFEREES should confirm start times with home coaches and their crew. Assume that there will be heavy traffic and delays getting to your games for you and visiting teams. A delayed start due to the traffic and detours would clearly fall under the “unavoidable lateness” exception and not result in an illegal procedure penalty on the visiting team.
If a team is late due to the traffic, the Referee MUST submit an incident report.
