What streets will be impacted and how?

During construction, Congress Avenue will be closed from 15th Street to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Utility relocation work will
cause temporary road closures on Colorado Street, Brazos Street, and San Jacinto Boulevard, between 15th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, as well as, temporary road closures on 16th, 17th and 18th Streets between Brazos Street and San Jacinto 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. At the completion of the Phase One Project, Congress Avenue from 16th Street to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard will be closed to vehicular traffic and transformed into a pedestrian mall. 16th, 17th, and 18th Streets will be converted into two-way traffic streets with 16th and 18th Streets able to cross the pedestrian mall and 17th Street, on both sides of Congress Avenue, allowing access to the underground parking garage.
