4th of July Austin street closures

Downtown fireworks: where to drive, park, walk, bike, bus, or avoid

blue, yellow and green fireworks

The Austin Symphony Orchestra’s Fourth of July Concert and Fireworks has been madly popular for years, and there’s no reason to expect crowds any smaller than the expected 10,000 people this year.

The city and its citizens have it down to a routine, but it helps to get a refresher on what street and trail closures to expect—helpful for plans to attend or to avoid the area around big event.

This list of street closures and related map, via the city events website, should help with all that. And if you want to consider alternatives, check out our map of great fireworks viewing spots.
