Get Ready for This Red River Street Closure That Lasts Into 2015
You may want to take a drive along Red River Street this weekend: it’s your last chance before the street is realigned to make way for UT-Austin's new Dell Medical School.
Starting Monday, Red River Street will be closed from Martin Luther King Boulevard to 15th Street – and it’s not scheduled to re-open until January.
The medical school construction is also causing detours of five Capital Metro routes. The following stops on Red River will be moved to the I-35 frontage road, San Jacinto or Trinity Streets:
- 10 Red River/ South First
- 20 Manor/ Riverside
- 37 Colony Park/Windsor Park
- 100 MetroAirport (southbound only)
- 670 CP- Crossing Place
The University of Texas has more on the closures related to the medical school. The City of Austin notes related roadwork on MLK Boulevard could create traffic delays.
