New East Austin Parking Meters Are Going in Right Now

From Franklin to the river

Fresh off its installation of new parking meters at the Zilker Park Great Lawn and Barton Springs parking lots ($5 a pop, maybe to guarantee you stay long enough to get your recommended daily allowance of outdoor time/money's worth?), KVUE-TV reports, the city will go for an encore in East Austin.

In the next few days, the city will unveil 93 new meters in an area along I-35 that is already bracing for a great flood of SXSW arrivals. Planned for an area bounded East 11th Street on the north, I-35 on the west, Chicon Street on the east, and to Lady Bird Lake on the south, according to KVUE.

A Parking and Transportation Management District (PTMD) agreement with the city stipulates that 51 percent of the revenue will go to neighborhood improvements, KVUE added.
