Tour the Waller Creek tunnel facility

Tuesday, March 10, 2020 by Tai Moses

Imagine Austin and the Watershed Protection Department are sponsoring a tour of the Waller Creek Tunnel Inlet Facility, which is part of the flood-control tunnel system that stretches from Waterloo Park to Lady Bird Lake. This unique example of civic infrastructure has spearheaded the revitalization of the eastern section of downtown Austin. Organizers recommend taking public transit (bus No. 10) or using one of the parking garages in the area, as there is no public parking at the facility. Dress for the outdoors and wear non-slip footwear – no heels, sandals, slippers or flip-flops. Personal protective gear will be provided. There are only 25 spots available, so RSVP to confirm by calling (512) 974-7877. Will be canceled/rescheduled in case of rain. Wednesday, March 25, 10 a.m.-1 p.m., 500 E. 12th St.
