Manchaca Road is no more.

A judge has dismissed a lawsuit that sought to block the City of Austin from changing the name of the South Austin road to honor a Texas revolutionary.

A Travis County district judge has paused the city's attempt to change Manchaca Road to Menchaca – again.

Business owners from a group called Leave Manchaca Alone sued to block the Austin City Council's October decision to change the name of the 8-mile South Austin road earlier this month on grounds that the city failed to give public notice and that the name-change would be cost prohibitive for businesses along the road who would have to alter signs and other branding.

Manchaca Road is still Manchaca – for now.

A Travis County judge has temporarily blocked Austin from changing the name of the 8-mile South Austin road from Manchaca to Menchaca the day before it was slated to go into effect.
