Take a detour to Office of Vital Records

Monday, July 15, 2019 by Tai Moses

This weekend saw the beginning of a major demolition and reconstruction project of the Colorado River bridge crossing on U.S. Highway 183. The work is expected to last up to a year, and while construction is ongoing, northbound traffic will be affected. Those headed for Austin Public Health’s Office of Vital Records will find that they need to take a detour; fortunately, the office has supplied several alternate routes:

  • From U.S. 183 Northbound: After crossing the Colorado River, continue northbound on U.S. 183. Keep left and use the U-turn at Bolm Road to head southbound on U.S. 183. Immediately merge to the far-right lane to exit for Airport Boulevard/Loop 111/Levander Loop. Keep right and look for the entrance to Austin Public Health on your right.
  • From East Cesar Chavez, Fifth and Seventh Streets: After crossing Springdale Road, turn left onto Shady Lane. Take Shady Lane across Airport Boulevard to Bolm Road. Turn right onto Bolm Road. Follow Bolm Road to Gardner Road. Turn right onto Gardner Road. Take Gardner Road to Levander Loop. Turn right onto Levander Loop. Keep right and look for the entrance to Austin Public Health on your right.
  • From U.S. 183 Southbound: After passing FM 969/Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard continue southbound past Bolm Road. Keep right and exit U.S. 183 to Airport Boulevard/Loop 111/Levander Loop. Keep right and look for the entrance to Austin Public Health on your right.

If you need a birth or death certificate, follow this process.
