Given my 7:30pm lottery time, I'm starting to search for hotels as a safety net in case I can't get closer between now and the start of the con. Over the last couple of years, there has been announced road construction coinciding with the convention - just wondering if anyone has hear anything yet so I know to focus on one area over others...
Keep an eye on https://www.in.gov/indot/2371.htm. And closer to the con: http://indot.carsprogram.org/#roadReports. That last is what I use in the days leading up to Gen Con. But yes, it doesn't help you with the housing issue tomorrow, I'm afraid. The first link may, though.
Thanks very much.
Yes, and the way it sounds, it could be almost as bad as last year.
I don't know about announced, but this might cause some issues, considering how burned out the bridge appears to be O.o
The bridge was already opened earlier this morning actually! It definitely caused some cosmetic damage but the bridge is structurally okay. So I wouldn't worry about any issues from that ramp.
INDOT released the planned construction schedule for the interstates this year.
The thing to remember about midwest road construction projects is that they only close the roads on days that end in 'Y' and projects are only during the months that start on the first.
Announcement on road construction
Looks like everything will be open during Gencon and the Monday after everything shuts down. I hope this is accurate since I have an airport hotel and I'm not spending an hour plus a day in traffic to get to and from the convention.
