One-way streets set to become two-way streets

Wednesday, June 26, 2019 by Tai Moses

The Austin Transportation Department is making some directional changes downtown. In alignment with the state’s Capitol Complex Master Plan, the department will be converting two downtown blocks – 17th and 18th streets between San Jacinto Boulevard and Trinity Street – from one-way streets to two-way streets. The conversion will take place Wednesday, June 26, and is expected to take no longer than a day, if the weather cooperates. The workers will keep at least one lane open on each street at any given time, in order to keep traffic moving along.
