Blues on the Green parking and traffic restrictions updated
Friday, July 8, 2016 by Kayleigh Hughes
The Austin Police Department has provided some useful info about new parking and traffic changes that the Austin Center for Events will be implementing around the Zilker Park area during the remainder of Austin’s beloved and very well-attended KGSR Blues on the Green events. According to APD, for the July 13 and Aug. 3 installments, “Signs will be placed in the neighborhoods adjacent to Zilker Park, including all or parts of Barton Hills Drive, Trailside Drive, Kinney Avenue, Garner Avenue, Barton Boulevard, Spoffard Street, Sunset View, Cliff Drive, Linscomb Avenue and Virginia Avenue.” Ticketing and towing, the department reminds attendees, “will be enforced for violations in all no parking areas on the days of each event, between 4 and 10 p.m.” Additionally, a designated drop-off zone has been established on Sterzing Street. Parking (for a fee) will be available at Stratford Fields and Zilker Park Polo Fields, but APD encourages attendees to consult KGSR’s “Getting There” guide and utilize other means of transportation. Finally, note that the standard Blues on the Green street closures will remain in effect during these last two events.
