Tens of thousands of visitors are expected to flock to locations along the path of totality for the upcoming solar eclipse, and one Piscataquis County town is concerned about the vehicles they're bringing with them. One issue is still causing concern for some in Dover-Foxcroft ahead of the big day. "Traffic, lots of traffic that we're not used to up in these rural parts of Maine," said Denise Buzzelli, executive director of the Piscataquis Chamber of Commerce. Officials are urging people passing through on April 8 to stick to the roadways. "There's going to be heavy traffic and people will be anxious to get places, but we're in mud season up here we don't want people traveling on open fields or railroad beds where they'll get stuck or stranded. And there's open water, so any ice you see -- stay off it," said Dover-Foxcroft Fire Department Chief Brian Gaudet.
