Map: Construction, Celebrations and Cupids Cause Road Closures
A construction crane, half-nude cupids and thousands of beads are resulting in several full and partial road closures in Austin this weekend.
The placement of a construction crane will close part of Congress Avenue Friday evening. Northbound Congress Avenue will be closed between Cesar Chavez and Third Streets from 7 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday, Feb. 11. Southbound traffic on Congress Avenue in the area will be reduced to two lanes.
Cupid's Undie Run, a run that raises money for the Children's Tumor Foundation, will close part of West Avenue on Saturday afternoon. The run is from 2 to 2:45 p.m. and will take place between W. Sixth and 13th Streets.
Mardi Gras celebrations will close down part of Sixth Street and several adjacent streets Saturday and Tuesday. Full and partial road closures both days begin at 9 p.m. and end at 5 a.m. the next morning.
