Record Number of Street Closures Planned Saturday

View in a larger map

Austin’s merciless summer is over and that means more people are planning outdoor weekend events. This Saturday, Austin will host eight events downtown, setting a record for the number of simultaneous street closures. That's according to the city’s transportation department.

Here's what's going on this weekend:

The city has a map of street closures here, but it’s a PDF and we hoped we could make it more useful by putting the closures on a Google Map.  The Austin Transportation Department also has this map of downtown parking lots and garages in case you’re heading to one of these events and can’t find street parking.
