Traffic

Listen to my full playlist below and enjoy the ride! American Girl – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers I was face down, on my futon, in Cary Quad at Purdue when I first heard this song. I was barely conscious because of all the STUDYING I WAS DOING for my upcoming examinations. I was soon […]

INDIANAPOLIS–The Indiana Department of Transportation will close the Pine Street entrance ramp to I-70 eastbound Monday July 25. It will reopen to traffic in late September, weather permitting. During the closure, they will reconstruct the Pine Street entrance ramp with connection to northbound I-65 and eastbound I-70. Both the West Street and Delaware Street on-ramps […]

INDIANAPOLIS–The Indiana Department of Transportation will close a portion of 10th Street in downtown Indianapolis as part of the ongoing North Split reconstruction project starting Monday morning. That closure will be between Bellefontaine Street on the west and Dorman Street/Massachusetts Avenue on the east. Traffic will still be able to access the Bottle Works complex […]

INDIANAPOLIS–Purple Line construction is supposed to resume in Indianapolis Monday morning. “Purple Line construction will enter a new 130-day closure along 38th Street between Keystone and Emerson avenues. One eastbound lane will remain open. Westbound lanes will be closed between Keystone and Emerson. Traffic will be detoured via Emerson Avenue, 46th Street and Keystone Avenue,” […]

INDIANAPOLIS–There have been developments for Indianapolis drivers who commute through downtown and the northeast side. In a major step forward for the North Split reconstruction project, traffic will shift to the newly constructed “flyover bridge” starting today. The newly completed bridge will connect southbound I-65 to eastbound I-70 while taking drivers from downtown to the […]

Construction zones continue to permeate and I’m numb, kind of like drinking yourself sober. It’s a way of life now, it’s everywhere, it’s Indianapolis – Where the Streets Have No Lanes. I suggest we turn E. 38th St. into a gravel road instead of just closing it for road work. Why not? In addition, we’ll […]

It’s pandemonium time in downtown Indianapolis this week. Expect wandering caravans of Crimson Tide fans to drift in and out of crosswalks like a herd of elephants crossing the Namid Desert. Expect Georgia fans to jaywalk through intersections with their nubby little bulldog legs. It’s a joy – all these guests and national attention. Welcome! […]

I ingest seven and-a-half baking cups of construction dust a day, solidifying my status as a downtown resident. I live next to the North Split construction zone – ground zero of the outbreak that killed off half of our roads – where I’m serenaded daily by the rhythmic stylings of head jackhammer’s rendition of “Recess […]

I-70 in Hancock and Henry Counties has slipped into a vehicular graveyard. All that’s left are rusted out PT Cruisers – homes for exotic animals that escaped from the Greenfield zoo since “the reckoning”, or Judgement Day, or the day the construction barrels dropped from the Greenfield Rest Area to Knightstown. I was driving to […]

The headline should read, “The Road to MY FAVORITE Mexican Restaurant in Indy is Closing”, otherwise we’re assuming I’ve tried every Mexican restaurant in the nap. Let’s also remember that more than one street leads to the delicious La Parada on the east side and their fajitas en fuego (not a real menu item). Maybe […]
