Busy Downtown Street To Close Tuesday After Rain Delay

Updated: Tuesday, April 15 2014, 08:23 AM CDT

On Tuesday morning crews are expected to shut down a busy stretch of Red River Street near the University of Texas after heavy rain Monday delayed the start. They're closing down the street between 15th and Martin Luther King Jr. It's the first step in the new UT medical school construction.

Red River is not the only street where traffic will be impacted. Crews need to restripe 15th to close Red River, and MLK will see construction as well starting Saturday. Both 15th and MLK will be open to traffic but are expected to see delays.

The closure and realignment of Red River is the first step in an accelerated construction schedule for the medical district. Red River will reopen in January 2015. In summer 2016, the first students will enroll in the UT medical school.

The nine-month-long construction along Red River will also detour some nearby Cap Metro routes and close some stops. For a list:
