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. Yes sir keep cashing those 300K a year checks direct to IMS, while millions disappear from the teams like Rahal's. Guess there wasn't enough ka- ching going around to keep Sarah Fisher in business without their "merger". LOL._____.Meanwhile back in Realville the series with the "best racing in the world" drew what appeared to be about 5000 live spectators ( and probably 1500 of those Target "freebies", and was beaten in the ratings by a series that reportedly consists of "parades" and aired while most people are still sleeping. That will generate those big ka-chings for sure. :-). But, hey, as long as the Speedway gets the cash who gives a damn about the teams?

  3. If I could actually get the prices...I would do this on my own. We need laws that force provides to publish the costs they will charge. Everyone else gives you the price in advance...except hospitals.

  4. I was under the impression that fencing is not allowed on a front yard and that on a corner, both sides are considered "front" yards, therefore can't be fenced without a variance. Also impedes the visibility for drivers at the intersection. Am I understanding this correctly? Might be why a fence was not included in the plans and a request for a variance will have to be made?.

  5. I was a big fan of Cowards and Carrots, which I got a chance to see at the show. It's currently on Kickstarter, but the designer also put out What's He Building in There last year, which got a fair amount of buzz.
