Traffic Restrictions & Road Closures Downtown for Presidential Visit [MAP]
With the city gearing up for a visit from President Donald Trump, there will be some changes to the flow of things downtown including restricted areas, closed intersections and pedestrian routes. Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke shared a detailed map outlining the different areas. As you can see the red line marks the path that pedestrians will use to get from the Civic Center parking lot to the Ford Center. There is not a direct route and foot traffic will be diverted around the Civic Center to Sycamore and then south on Martin Luther King to Main Street. There are a number of intersections surrounding the Old National Events Plaza and the Ford Center that are closed to vehicular traffic and everything enclosed in yellow on the map is closed to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
