LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- A traffic advisory from city leaders ahead of the KHSAA Sweet 16 included how to plan for the influx of commuters but didn’t mention how area businesses are positively impacted.
Businesses like Goodfellas Pizza look forward to March in Downtown Lexington. Employees even say there’s a steady line out the door most of the month. Since 2004, the boys’ state basketball tournament has brought that.

We spoke with employees and folks on the street about traffic and how businesses benefit from the swarms of fans and families.
