New traffic and sidewalk restrictions are being put in place near the RCA Dome so that demolition work can begin.
Closing two lanes of Capitol Avenue in downtown Indianapolis will allow preliminary work, such as removal of the dome’s signs.
City police officials do not expect the new lane restrictions to cause significant traffic troubles. South Street is closed as construction work continues on the new Lucas Oil Stadium, which is scheduled to open in August.
Contractors expect to use a controlled explosion in October to demolish the RCA Dome’s upper seating section.
