Traffic delays anticipated as thousands travel to Indy for NRA convention


The National Rifle Association’s 148th annual convention will bring thousands of gun enthusiasts and protesters, and even the President of the United States to Indianapolis Friday—but with that will come a series of traffic diversions, delays and road closures. 

Beginning Friday morning, Interstate 70 between Interstate 465 and downtown Indy will be closed. Eastbound I-70 traffic will be diverted to I-465 north and south. Westbound I-70 traffic will be diverted to Interstate 65 north and south. 

Delays for eastbound I-70 traffic will likely be between 10 and 11:30 a.m., while westbound traffic will be most affected between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. 

Delays and closures are expected in the downtown area until around 6:30 p.m. Friday.
