INDIANAPOLIS - Broad Ripple Avenue will be closed to traffic on Friday and Saturday nights in an effort to improve security after a violent weekend.
The strip will close from midnight until 4 a.m. both nights of the weekend. A spokesman for Mayor Greg Ballard said Thursday that every effort will be made to start the new security measure by Friday night.
Officials said the goal is not to turn the area into a "street party" and emergency vehicles and taxis will still be allowed in.
The effort will go on at least through the end of summer in addition to the new security cameras that were installed in the village on Wednesday.
