You know, looking at the Indystar map, I wonder if anyone coming up northbound on I-65 from southern Indiana are going to have to take a different exit to get to downtown. The logical route would normally be I-65 to I-70 west at the south split, then exit directly onto West Street and go right past the stadium to the ICC in just a couple of blocks. Quick, easy, simple. BUT
, that exit onto I-70 would be closed, right? So, then those folks would have to do what? Keep going north on I-65, then just exit onto Washington? Or exit earlier at the Morris/Prospect off ramp, then head west through the residential streets to East St.?
I know this is going to feel like a pain, but seriously: For folks not familiar with Indianapolis, it shouldn't be painful to get where you need to go. Just difficult, and maybe a touch frustrating. I wonder if it's worth it for folks who know Indy to be on Discord and Twitter for others crying "Help!" about finding ways to get around?
It doesn't look like you'll be able to get to Washington Street from I-65, either. It looks like that stretch is also closed. If you're coming up from the south, you could exit 65 at Raymond Street. Go West on Raymond, then North on Shelby, Meridian, West or Harding streets. All of which will get you downtown fairly quickly (depending on re-routed traffic, that is).
