Indiana State Fair Suggests Using Alternate Entrances
INDIANAPOLIS – Lane closures that have been in place on Fall Creek Parkway near Keystone Avenue since Monday morning will remain in place through Friday afternoon.
Citizens Energy Group crews are replacing a broken 104-year-old water line, which has resulted in the closure of the far left southbound lane and the two left northbound lanes. Other lanes may be closed intermittently to allow construction equipment to cross the roadway.
Work is taking longer than initially expected due to the need to replace rather than repair the water line, as well as weather conditions and efforts to avoid impacting the numerous other water lines in the immediate area.
As a result of these lane closures, the Indiana State Fair suggests using alternate entrances to the Fairgrounds:
If traveling south on Fall Creek Parkway, turn west onto 46th Street and follow traffic signals to park at the Indiana School for the Deaf.
If traveling north on Keystone Avenue, two alternative options are to turn west onto 38th Street and park in the South Lot just south of the Fairgrounds, or turn west onto 46th Street and follow traffic signals to park at the Indiana School for the Deaf.
According to Sharon Smith, Communications Manager with the Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center, “For the best possible experience getting to and from the Indiana State Fair, please use www.IndianaStateFairParking.com for updated routes, alternative transportation options and parking availability. On your way to the fair, be sure to watch for the traffic officers and signals directing you to available parking.”
