IMPD began strictly enforcing no parking areas along the Red Line route Monday.

IndyGo representative Lauren Day says patrons and residents are encouraged to read signs carefully and not park in areas with white hash-marks on the pavement, especially along Capitol and College avenues. 

“Areas that will not have parking when the Red Line opens are starting to exist right now,” says Day, “so it’s a good time to learn what those new road configurations are going to be.”

Pavement markings are being installed on College Avenue from 38th to 66th streets. The work will occur primarily overnight, between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., and street parking will be restricted while parking spaces are being marked.

The Red Line service is scheduled to begin Sept. 1 and will be free to ride the entire month of September. Local routes, including Open Door paratransit, will be free until Sept. 14.
