  • Better Traffic Flow At KY

    Hopefully this will speed the traffic flow on raceday.

    Ramp Expansion To Improve Traffic Flow To Kentucky Speedway

    Reported by: AP

    Race track officials say traffic bound for Kentucky Speedway should flow more smoothly with the completion of an interstate ramp expansion.
    Work crews added a second lane to the Interstate 71 ramp at Kentucky 35, the main road into the speedway in Gallatin County.

    Speedway management had hoped the project would be completed earlier in the race season. About 50-thousand fans are expected at the track for the August 17th Belterra Casino Indy 300.

    Two more highway projects are planned near the speedway.

    One will widen I-71 to three lanes north of the speedway. The other will complete a new road from Exit 55 on I-71, the interchange south of the speedway, down to Markland Dam. The dam serves as a bridge to southern Indiana. Work on both projects will be completed in the next one to two years.

    From the the open test and a few visits to Racer's, with the widened ramp and second exit that was opened last year, it will be smooth sailing race fans

      They expanded the ramp TO the Speedway, but I always thought it was the ramps leading AWAY that were the problem.

        Yeah..it's not a big problem when folks are dribbling in over a few hours. It's when they all want to go home at the same time that it becomes an issue.
