Park Butler

Traffic Detours & Campus Accessibility

Streetscape project construction will effectively shut down Sunset Avenue, accessible to only local residents, and thus alter access to the Butler University campus and specific facilities. The maps below outline detour routes for the first phase of construction. 

Please respect construction personnel and residents of the Butler-Tarkington Neighborhood by obeying traffic signs, detour routes, and speed limits. Cutting through neighborhood side streets and alleyways is discouraged and will be monitored by Butler University and Indianapolis Police Departments. 

Phase 1.1 Detour Maps

During the first phase of construction, the intersection of 49th Street and Sunset Avenue will be closed for a softening of that curve. Motorists should utilize detour routes at Hampton Dr., 46th Street, and Boulevard Avenue. Use of side streets and alleyways are for residents only.
