Street closures map for QueerBomb march and other fun stuff

Downtown will be alive with pleasurable activities this weekend

Seriously, the fun, it never stops. Starting Friday, the Transform! event to explore Congress Avenue and talk about creating better public urban spaces will take place up and down the street through Saturday.

Then there’s upstart Pride alternative QueerBomb’s rally, procession, and celebration—now in its seventh year!—Saturday night.

Luckily for people who like to drive on streets downtown, both events involve only brief or partial closures.

Our Congress Avenue: Transform!

According to Downtown Austin Alliance, Transform! will involve only a partial closure from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday:

S. CONGRESS AVENUE

(Partial Closure)

Between Ann Richards Bridge and Barton Springs

NOTE: This is for one lane closure on South Congress Avenue (western-most lane) from the southern end of Ann Richards Bridge to Barton Springs. Bike lane will be accommodated.

QueerBomb!

The Saturday QueerBomb event has several different parts (see the Facebook page for full schedule), but it will involve street closures (or, more accurately, police escorts stopping traffic only for as long as the procession passes through) from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. only.
