The easiest part getting down to Southport rd. is getting onto 70e/65s from Delaware street. However, once I'm 65 southbound I seem to run into stalled traffic more times than not. Once the 70 west split hits, it's clear traffic.
Going to Shadeland from my house is much easier. I veer left to stay on 70e and get off at the Shadeland exit. The issues on shadeland are traffic lights are really quick, it's hard to turn left out of businesses, there's medians which force a right turn, and potholes.
