Traffic Impacts:   Keeneland opens at 11 AM and is located on the West side of Lexington with the primary bottlenecks being Man O War/Versailles Road at the entrance to Keeneland and Versailles Road/New Circle Road ~ 2 miles East of the main entrance.  The last race generally runs about 5 PM so on Friday the impact will be doubled with normal rush hour traffic.  On Saturday the University of Kentucky (Wildcats) football team will be taking on the Auburn (Tigers)  at home but I will post more information about that at a later date when I have more information on the expected impacts, just wanted to get that information out for people planning on coming out for the last weekend of the Games.
