Traffic Plans for Super Bowl in Development
After gridlock outside the track during the Indianapolis 500, city officials are taking a closer look at traffic plans for another major event - the Super Bowl this coming February.Listen:
Mel Raines with the Super Bowl 2012 Host Committee says they want to make sure everyone who lives and works downtown knows how to handle the changes for the 10-day period leading up to the big game.
Under federal anti-terrorism statutes, a 300-foot perimeter must be set up around Lucas Oil Stadium. Raines says that will impact traffic and parking for some folks.
Raines says they plan to unveil the traffic plan sometime in December and then promote the changes the six to eight weeks ahead of the game February 5, 2012.
Thousands of extra people are expected in and around the city that week. Shuttle services similar to what's done on race day will be a part of the traffic plan.
