The Clarksville Police Department will issue a limited number of passes for Residents and Businesses. Residents are not required to have permits, however, after the south end of Clarksville has been closed to vehicular traffic, no one including residents will gain entry to the south end of Clarksville.
To request a permit, contact the RECORDS DEPARTMENT at the Clarksville Police Department between the hours of 8am and 3:30pm., in person or call Phone 812.288.7151, or email email@example.com
The closure of the south end is based on congestion of traffic in the area and can take place at any time and will continue until the conclusion of Thunder Over Louisville.
Residents are strongly encourage to advise visitors to arrive early to the event. No exceptions will be made.
Once anyone leaves the south end in vehicular traffic, re-entry will only happen after the conclusion of Thunder Over Louisville and the south end traffic has been cleared (typically from 12:30am to 2am).
***RIVERSIDE DR AT MAIN ST WILL BE CLOSED FOR ALL TRAFFIC DUE TO CONSTRUCTION***
When it is determined that the event area has become saturated with traffic, Command Officers will restrict access to the South End. Once roadways are closed, the primary entry point for Residents ONLY will be North Clark at Brown Station Way (Near Culligan). All other vehicles will be denied entry at this time.
The final closing will be determined by the amount of event traffic. In the past it has occurred between 4 and 5pm but has occurred earlier and roads will become ONE WAY (Northbound) out of the event area by 8:50pm. No southbound traffic will be permitted.
Eastbound Brown Station Way at Lewis and Clark will close at 8pm or as directed by the Officer in Charge. Traffic will be routed to Lewis and Clark eastbound. No westbound traffic will be allowed on Brown Station Way.
