The upcoming EPD Foundation SWAT Challenge is going to create some headaches for those of us that travel through downtown Evansville. According to a post on Facebook from Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, Riverside Drive will be closed from Court to Cherry Streets between Noon on Friday, May 4th and 4pm on Saturday, May 5th. Not only that but First Street will be closed from Vine to Cherry and the following roads will be closed between 2nd Street and Riverside Drive:

Vine Street
Sycamore Street
Main Street

Essentially, all of the traffic from Riverside will be rerouted along 2nd Street which is already a bit of a mess thanks to construction barrels and cones. It almost feels as though driving in Evansville has become somewhat of a Hunger Games scenario, "May the odds be ever in your favour!"
