(BLOOMINGTON) - Thousands of students, staff and faculty are expected to take to the road the week of October 2 in anticipation of Indiana University's fall break scheduled for Friday, October 6, through Sunday, October 8.

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) encourages all motorists to plan for expected delays on State Road 37 between Bloomington and Martinsville.

INDOT recommends using the alternate routes of State Road 46 east to I-65 north or State Road 46 west to State Road 67 north for travel from Bloomington to Indianapolis. Students heading north from campus to Indianapolis or Indianapolis International Airport are encouraged to carpool or use a shuttle service.
