I just don't by the "security" argument. The gates to their parking lots are wide open. Anyone can drive in and up alongside the building. I've gone in to make a u-turn during snow storms when the traffic is backed up. Using National Security isn't an excuse for everything corporate America wants. On the IUPUI campus working adults seem to have no problem crossing the street. Surely they have the skill to build a bridge or tunnel like everyone else.

I worked at the Allison plants mentioned and the solution to the problem is a guard shack on the west side of Grande with a stop light/crosswalk they could control, NOT closing this street altogether.

Didn't Allison's Plant 14 somehow not make it on the property tax rolls for years and even after this was discovered they only had to pay seven years back taxes, shorting the city of Speedway out of millions of dollars? And now they want to take a public street???
