In the run-up to the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis, one of the many new projects around the city in preparation for the event is to transform the three block stretch of Georgia Street, in downtown Indianapolis, into a pedestrian friendly corridor that will run from the newly expanded Indiana convention Center all the way to the Conseco Fieldhouse -- connecting the two.

Local architectural powerhouse, Ratio Architects, has described the project as an "urban outdoor event venue", and says it should be completed before the city hosts the Super Bowl in 2012. The project will add new street lights, trees, a pedestrian path, a retractable overhead covering, along with outdoor cafés all along George Street from Capitol Avenue to Pennsylvania Street. George Street will continue to serve as a two-way street and will only be closed to traffic for special events.

I've included a PDF from Ratio Architects which includes several renderings and other images of the project.
