Traffic Flow Forecast

In order to help you plan your visit, Actors Theatre has developed a Traffic Flow Forecast that anticipates traffic flow for the current and upcoming week of performances. In addition to the Traffic Flow Forecast, we recommend checking one of the following resources for live traffic information, as unanticipated occurrences may change traffic flow:
Google Maps
or
Traffic.com

Traffic Updates and Alerts

We will send out performance reminders to all patrons via email the week preceding their scheduled performance. These reminders will alert you to anything that may impact your visit, including event/game conflicts, route suggestions, traffic warnings, etc. In addition, Actors Theatre will post the same alerts to the website (ActorsTheatre.org), and send out traffic updates via its social media outlets, including Twitter (@ATLouisville) and Facebook.

At this time we strongly encourage you to contact the box office at 502-584-1205 to make sure we have the appropriate email address on file for you to ensure you receive up-to-date information regarding traffic and events throughout the season. If you would like traffic updates and other special notices via text message, please share this request and your cell phone number with the Box Office as well.

In addition to the traffic flow forecast and suggested traffic resources above, you may want to reference the KFC Yum! Center schedule and the University of Louisville Men’s and Women’s basketball schedules.
