Monday morning commute downtown could be messy

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A Monday morning event drawing more than 13,000 people to Conseco Fieldhouse is expected to snarl downtown traffic during the early commute.

Fieldhouse officials are encouraging commuters to leave early and plan ahead, as heavy traffic and delays are anticipated.

Doors to the fieldhouse will open at 6:45 a.m. to help alleviate traffic congestion. The "Get Motivated!" business seminar, featuring 10 speakers, including former First Lady Laura Bush, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and General Colin Powell, starts at 8 a.m.

Organizers recommend attendees park at the Lucas Oil Stadium South lot or the Market Street garage just north of the fieldhouse.

Bus service is available using IndyGo Commuter Express routes from Fishers and Carmel, with a bus stop on Pennsylvania Street, one block north of the fieldhouse. Morning buses into downtown run from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. with return trips scheduled from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The fare is $3 each way.

A special shuttle service will run for Monday’s event, with satellite parking available at the Indianapolis Zoo for $8 per vehicle. The round-trip shuttle is free and will operate between the zoo parking lot and the fieldhouse from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

  • Mayor Marine and his 4th grade IQ
    Yeah Georgia is a mess. Why don't the morons do the work at night and 24/7 in such vital artery areas.

    For more than 3 weeks the CITY has allowed a contractor to absolutely do nothing to the sidewalk on the west side of capital south of Meridian? Have these dummy's ever heard of Microsofts Project Planning Software to do Critical Path Analysis so that when demo/tear out is complete you start the laying of the pavers and pouring concrete.

    O yeah don't try going down Kentucky Avenue... 1st graders could have made that street more level. The City should be sueing the contractor for poor workmanship.
  • And this is different how?
    Seriously . . . between resurfacing, the Georgia street prep for the new "park area" the road work is OUT OF CONTROL! Georgia, Illinois and Meridian are a nightmare. Can't the work be done at night? Seriously its nuts.
  • Who pays for traffic?
    I hope the promoters of this scam (not the presenters)get the bill for the extra police required for traffic control.

  1. I keep wondering why I keep hearing about this problem of corporations leaving America, and I never hear a reasonable proposal to lower corporate tax rates and raise personal rates on income from capital gains and dividends, especially for high earners. It is just too simple of a solution for Congress to embrace?

  3. is a disaster. SR37 already needs to be built to interstate standards between 465 and SR144. Southport Road is a mess each morning and evening.

  4. Bass Pro Shops would be good for the mall as well as a Giant Eagle Market District or a Jungle Jim's International Market Place grocery store like the one near Cincinnati Ohio.A Disney quest indoor theme park would be good.An Academy outdoor store would be good too.Indoor Circus shows and magic shows would be good as well. A casino with sports bar would be good.A Disney theater inside that shows movies and Broadway shows would work.Nashville Tennessee concert shops with indoor neon lights would be good.How about a theater that shows travel shows and theme parks. A train store would be good.How about a giant toy store with high tech video games.

  5. This development is in addition to Allpoints Midwest 5, Aitrtek, a recent FedEx and more in Plainfield. Greenwood and Brownsburg also have similar projects.
