adaThe Indiana Stadium and Convention Building Authority announced today that 125 to 150 additional parking spaces for guests with disabilities have been identified around Lucas Oil Stadium.

The ISCBA said three areas will now be available on a first-come, first-served basis to motorists with properly identified vehicles transporting guests with disabilities to Indianapolis Colts games at the stadium. With the assistance of Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, portions of the 100 block of West Merrill Street, (between Illinois Street and Capitol Avenue) and portions of the 600-800 block of Russell Avenue (between Merrill and McCarty Streets) will be reserved for people with disabilities. Also, with the assistance of the State of Indiana Department of Administration, their lot at 601 West McCarty Street will be available to guests with disabilities. 

The newly-identified spaces are in response to fans who have expressed concern about difficulties in identifying spaces for fans with disabilities during the first few events at the stadium. 

“I am pleased and encouraged with the continuing effort by all the parties to assist guests with disabilities to find appropriate and adequate parking for Colts games,” said Greg Fehribach, the ISCBA’s consultant for disabilities issues. “I am also excited that this is the final piece in ensuring that fans with disabilities have full and total enjoyment of what is an excellently designed and built facility.”

  1. This is still my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. What I do love about the new version is it is much quieter than the most recent version. TV's were off, the music wasn't too loud, and the wait staff were not hyperactive like they had been the past few times I had been there. I just wish they would bring back the MOLE for the enchiladas!

  2. Not a bad paper. There is a need for local community news and city government issues. Don't really need the owner's constant national political rants. We all know where they stand by now.

  3. What nice people. Menard should've known better than to team up with the guy who robbed and drove Conseco to ashes. I'm surprised Timothy Durham isn't involved in this.

  4. Hello, I am Maris Peters, currently living in Texas city, USA. I am a widow at the moment with three kids and i was stuck in a financial situation in August 2014 and i needed to refinance and pay my bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan Companies both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to a Man of God a private loan lender who gave me a loan of $65,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment, if you must contact any firm or company with reference to securing a loan without collateral , no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact Mr William David. He doesn’t know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about him and also i want God to bless him more.You can contact him through his email: Davidloanfirm@yahoo.com

  5. It is beyond me how anyone can think this was a "bad deal" for the state! If they could take the money back then, yes, but they can't! Protections were built in the agreement. Now, if they roll the roads up and take them away, I will agree that it was a bad deal. Otherwise, the only way to have paid for the infrastructure that was badly needed was for the state to issue bonds....that is a four letter synonym for debt folks!!
