Discover Totality

 


 

August 14, 2017The White House Police Department would like to advise our citizens to expect major traffic delays this weekend ahead of the solar eclipse on Monday, August 21st. We have been meeting with local, state, and federal agencies for the past 6 months in preparation of this event, and the latest projected numbers we have range from 106,011 to over 424,032 visitors (source: GreatAmericanEclipse.com). We expect major congestion on I-65, SR 76 and US 31W, which could lead to very heavy traffic on side roads and neighborhoods. The White House Police Department has cancelled all days off so every available officer will be working through the weekend to ensure the safety of our citizens. Please be aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious activity to the WHPD at 615-672-4903 or 911 in the event of an emergency. 

 


 

On Monday, August 21, 2017, the City of White House will become one of the best and possibly most popular viewing locations for the Great American Eclipse. With 2 minutes and 39 seconds of totality, White House will experience total darkness with one of the longest viewing times in the nation. It has been almost 500 years since an event like this has happened in this exact location. Communities throughout the Path of Totality have various events and activities planned to celebrate this once in a lifetime event and to welcome visitors. With hotels sold out for months, White House is anticipating thousands of visitors for the Eclipse weekend. 

 

On Sunday night there will be a Movie Under the Stars and on Monday there will be a viewing party.
