Downtown traffic restrictions in effect Wednesday

Tuesday, August 4, 2015 by Nora Ankrum

Drivers in the downtown/Zilker Park area will be rerouted Wednesday night to accommodate pedestrians attending Blues on the Green. According to an announcement from the city, Barton Springs Road will be completely closed from Columbus Drive, near MoPac, to Robert E. Lee Road. Traffic coming from Robert E. Lee Road will have access to the eastbound lanes of Barton Springs Road, which are headed away from the event. However, westbound traffic on Barton Springs Road will have no access to Robert E. Lee Road and will instead be diverted northbound onto Sterzing Street. The modified traffic-control plan will be in effect from 9 to 11 p.m.
