Directions to Capitol (PLEASE BRING PHOTO ID)
From I-64, you’ll take exit 53 (Frankfort/Lawrenceburg) and go toward Frankfort (north on 127). You will go through a few stop lights and then turn RIGHT onto 676, the East-West Connector. After you go through the flashing light, turn LEFT at the next stop light (onto 420 North). Follow approximately 1 mile then turn LEFT into the Capitol Parking Garage. You can park on any of the first 4 floors (actually numbered 6-3). The upper levels are reserved for legislators. Take the elevator to the ground level and walk across to the Capitol Annex.Our meeting room is Capitol Annex, Third Floor, Room 346.

In the unlikely event that the capitol garage is full, continue up the ramp to the top of the parking structure where there are also parking spaces.  If you exit the ground level parking lot, you may drive around the capitol (the road is one-way toward the right) where there is on-street parking on Capital Avenue and several side streets in front of the capitol building.  If you choose this option, you’ll need to enter the capitol and then go to the basement and walk through the tunnel to get to the Capitol Annex.
