FREMONT – The Military Vehicle Preservation Association will bring it’s 2019 convoy right through Fremont on Tuesday, as part of their trip honoring the 100th anniversay of the first US Army Transcontinental Motor Convoy across the United States.
The convoy will be arriving in Fremont on Tuesday, August 27th around 8:30AM. The convoy will travel Old Highway 275 to Bell Street, and from Bell Street to 16th Street. The convoy will travel east on 16th to Diers Parkway, then travel north to the Fremont Walmart parking lot for a rest break. The convoy will be parked at Walmart from 8:30AM to around 9AM before continuing on, traveling west on 23rd street to the airport area before heading on to Schuyler.
As many as 70 historic military vehicles are expected to be part of the convoy, which will retrace the original 1919 US Army Transcontinental Motor Convoy’s path across the country, largely traveling over the famous historical Lincoln Highway. The convoy began its journey from York, PA on Saturday, August 10th, and will continue to travel cross-country through Saturday, September 14th when they’ll arrive in San Francisco, CA – a total trip of 36 days and 3,200 miles.
