East Fourth converting to one-way
Wednesday, April 13, 2022 by Tai Moses
Austinites who frequent the area around East Fourth Street between the northbound Interstate 35 frontage road and San Marcos Street may have noticed that crews have begun work converting the street into a one-way configuration. According to a news release from the Transportation Department, the project is designed to make the road safer and prevent “conflicts between right-turning motor vehicles and people walking, bicycling or scooting across the Lance Armstrong Bikeway on the north curb of East Fourth Street.” Other planned changes include “reinforcing no on-street parking along the east curb of the I-35 northbound frontage road between Third Street and Fourth Street” in order to improve visibility; making westbound East Fourth Street a local-access-only route between San Marcos Street and 120 feet west of San Marcos Street; and installing a new signal at the north and southbound frontage roads of I-35 “to support frequent crossings of the frontage road by people walking, bicycling and rolling.”
