Mapping Street Closures for the LiveStrong Marathon
The LiveStrong Austin Marathon gets underway this Sunday, and the race means several street closures in the urban core.
The earliest of the closures -- the red lines marked in the map above, which you can also view and download online -- affect Congress Avenue and several side-streets between 11th and 5th street. Those closures begin Saturday, Feb. 18, at 4 a.m, and will extend until 6.p.m on Sunday.
If you plan on traveling downtown this weekend, you would do well to avoid the area around Congress Avenue completely, along with the position of the Texas Capitol complex immediately north of the building.
You can learn about the closures on the City of Austin website.
