Basketball Fans to Meet Spring Breakers on Indiana Highways

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO): If you are in Indianapolis this weekend, you can expect some traffic issues.

Combine the heavier than normal traffic of spring break travelers and the Final Four with a new issue – three of the four teams are within a five hour drive of Indianapolis. That means the Interstates 65, 69 and 74 will be packed. So will be U.S. 31.

INDOT is working to reduce issues by temporarily removing construction restrictions in key areas.  They are also providing assistance through the “Hoosier Helpers” patrol to provide information to travel and map apps.

Travelers are urged to “know before you go” by checking green-yellow-red traffic speeds on their mobile map app of choice or INDOT’s TrafficWise webpage at indot.carsprogram.org.

The TrafficWise service also details construction projects and traffic incidents at 800-261-ROAD (7623) or 511 on your mobile phone. For social media updates on Facebook and Twitter, find your regional district at in.gov/indot/3074.htm
