The Republic of Texas Biker Rally begins tonight and the Austin Police Department expects it to affect downtown traffic.

A motorcycle procession beginning at 8 p.m. will cause partial road closures along the route from the Travis Country Exposition Center, traveling downtown along E. MLK Boulevard, Webberville Road, Oak Springs Road and west on E. 11th Street.

The parade will conclude on Congress Avenue, where full road closures will take place until 3 a.m. between Cesar Chavez and East 11th Street, and between Colorado and Brazos streets.

Large numbers of pedestrians expected in the E. Sixth Street area will likely require a closure west of the IH-35 frontage road and Brazos.

APD recommends alternate routes including Interstate 35, Lamar Boulevard and Guadalupe Street.

Both directions on 11th Street, southbound Colorado and northbound Brazos streets will remain open.

The city has a complete list and map of street closures.
