If you're planning on going to the big IU game against Georgia Southern on Saturday, not only will it be a hot one, but it might be a headache to get to, as State Road 37 construction could cause some major delays as you're heading to Bloomington.
State Road 37 is restricted to one lane in both directions, and the speed limit is reduced to 45 miles per hour while this construction is underway.
So, INDOT recommends taking an alternate route to the game.
One alternate route you can use is to take southbound I-65 toward Columbus, to westbound State Highway 46, and continue into Bloomington from there. This route takes about an hour and 20 minutes from Indianapolis.
Another option is to go southbound on State Highway 67 toward Spencer, then go eastbound on State Highway 46, and continue into Bloomington. This route is also estimated to take about an hour and 20 minutes from Indianapolis.
And one final option is to take westbound I-70 toward southbound 231, then go eastbound on State Highway 46 into Bloomington. This route is estimated to take about an hour and 25 minutes from Indianapolis.
Whichever way you choose to go to the game, you'll want to leave a lot earlier than you typically would with all of the construction, detours, and increased traffic.
But hey the good news is that parking lots are open about 5 hours prior to kickoff to have some tailgate fun!
