Thunder Over Louisville Sat., Apr. 21, 2018

April 16, 2018

TARC is increasing service into downtown Louisville and designating six post-event boarding areas for Thunder Over Louisville on Sat., Apr. 21. The service plan mirrors TARC service for Thunder in recent years with the exception of an added boarding location on Broadway at 11th.

Buses on cross-river routes #71-Jeffersonville, Louis- ville, New Albany AND #72-Clarksville will not make return trips to Indiana after 8 pm due to the closure of the Clark Memorial (2nd Street), Lincoln and Ken- nedy Bridges. Those two routes will also be detoured (see below) during the closure of the bridges.

Post-event boarding in downtown Louisville will be restricted to six locations, most within blocks of the waterfront. Buses will operate until 11 p.m. at those locations (see list and map below). Due to traffic, buses have limited access on downtown streets after the event. The boarding locations are designed to keep buses out of heavy traffic as much as possible and to get people home as quickly as possible.

Detours - Routes #71-New Albany, Louisville Jeffersonville and #72-Clarksville The Clark Memorial Bridge will be closed to traffic Thurs., Apr. 20, 9:30 a.m. – midnight; Fri., Apr. 21 and Sat., Apr. 22, all day; Sun., Apr. 23, midnight to 2 p.m.

When the bridge is closed, buses use the following detour: Routes #71 and #72 northbound: From Liberty, I-65 N to Court Ave. exit, right on Court to regular route.

Route #71 westbound: From Court Ave. right on Spring St., left on 10th St., I-65 S to Jefferson Street exit and regular route.
