Parking meter hours extended in Central East Austin

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 by Katy McElroy

Effective yesterday morning, the on-street, metered parking hours in Central East Austin are now 8 a.m. to 11:59 p.m., Monday through Saturday. The new parking rules cover Interstate 35 to Chicon Street and East 11th Street to Lady Bird Lake, where the hours were previously 6 p.m. to 11:59 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Over the next two weeks, parking enforcement officers will issue warning citations as residents get used to the new hours. The new hours are an attempt to circulate traffic and create turnover, the Austin Transportation Department said in a press release, as the department has been hearing complaints from stakeholders about unavailability of daytime parking in the area.
