Thursday will see the volume of motorists and pedestrians in downtown Indianapolis start to increase as Super Bowl ticketholders arrive in the city. Expect more congestion and delays throughout downtown including around the hotels and key venues like Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Thursday (Mike Epps performance) and Saturday (Pacers vs. Magic game). 

 

Other updates:

Monument Circle:  Because of the popular XLVI Roman numeral display and the taping of the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show, we continue to encourage motorists to avoid travel on the south half of Monument Circle. Traffic may be closed at times for public safety, especially during afternoon and evening hours. Caution should be used even when open.

Avoid Pinch Points: We are still encouraging motorists to avoid key “pinch” areas due to congestion and delays during peak rush hour periods unless traveling to specific destinations along those streets:  Morning rush hour, avoid South Meridian and South Illinois north of South Street.  Afternoon rush hour, avoid Capitol between Maryland and Washington Street, Maryland between Capitol and Pennsylvania, and Ohio between Delaware and Capitol.

Now is the time:  If downtown workers haven’t tried public transportation or car pooling, now is the time. Free service on IndyGo on Thursday and Friday. If you are not on an IndyGo bus route, look for the closest IndyGo park and ride site to your home. Service on the Indy Express Bus from Carmel and Fishers. Car pool with friends, co-workers, or family. Check out: www.327ride.net.

 

New Parking Option for Fans through Saturday: Because of extra capacity, an additional parking option is now available for $10 onsite on a first come basis at the north and east Park and Ride locations (327 North Illinois and 101 North New Jersey respectively). The fee does NOT include a shuttle ride but the parking locations are within walking distance to the Super Bowl activities.

Transportation and Parking

Monument Circle Clarification: Motorists are advised to avoid travel on the south half of Monument Circle. Traffic may be closed at times for public safety, especially during afternoon and evening hours. Caution should be used even when open as many pedestrians stop in the street to take photos of the Super Bowl Roman numerals. PLEASE NOTE: Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Show will be taped at Hilbert Circle Theatre Wednesday through Friday this week attracting more pedestrians in that area.

We are still encouraging motorists to avoid key “pinch” areas due to congestion and delays during peak rush hour periods unless traveling to specific destinations along those streets: Morning rush hour, avoid South Meridian and South Illinois north of South Street. Afternoon rush hour, avoid Capitol Avenue between Maryland and Washington Streets, Maryland between Capitol and Pennsylvania Streets, and Ohio between Delaware and Capitol.
