Police suggest planning your route home in advance, and if you don't need to leave immediately after the fireworks to wait it out for about an hour.

"If you do need to get on the road, one thing we'd like you to consider is using Utica Pike East toward Port Road and you'll be able to access the new I-265 ramp, which will get you back to I-65 or across to Louisville."

A handicap parking area will be set up at the intersection of West Market and Fort Streets.
