Congress Avenue is closed from 15th Street to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, as Phase One of the State of Texas Capitol Mall progresses. Upon completion, North Congress Avenue will be a pedestrian mall from 16th street to Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. (19th Street). The East /West streets, 16th, 17th, and 18th Streets will be converted into two-way traffic streets. Only 16th and 18th Streets will cross the pedestrian mall. Access to the parking garages underneath the pedestrian mall will be from 17th street on either side of Congress Avenue.
In early 2019, the utility relocation work will begin. There will be temporary road closures on Colorado Street, Brazos Street, and San Jacinto Boulevard, between 15th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. The Central Utility Plant expansion work will also cause temporary road closures to occur on 14th Street between Brazos Street and San Jacinto Boulevard and on Brazos Street between 14th and 15th Street.
