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.
Celebrate now. But we all know there is more coming. The I70/65 work is ongoing. As well as DT road work south of Lucas. As well as prep. work on the mew Mega hotels site, which should be starting this year.
I read the road report linked above and if its accurate we should be good...except southport. Southport used to be my go to if I couldn't get a hotel room though the block and it still would be but according to the report the southport bridge will be shut down during the convention and I have no idea how that will effect traffic to and from the hotels right there. About 4 years back they shut down one of the bridges, late at night, on the route from the convention to the my hotel at southport and it took two hours for that 7 mile trip. I did not know it would be shut down and I did not know indy enough to know of an alternate route. Fortunately it was only one night but now I'm gun shy of any construction between an outlying hotel and the convention center.
