Alternate Routes To Help Get Around Downtown Construction

Updated: Tuesday, July 8 2014, 06:05 PM CDT

A Downtown Austin construction project is causing heavy delays for morning commuters, but there are some simple alternate routes to save you time.

Over the weekend construction crews closed lanes on Lavaca Street and delays set in first thing Monday morning as the work week got underway.

There are only two lanes open on Lavaca Street between 2nd and 3rd streets and it's going to be like that until July 25.

The work is part of the Third Street Corridor Improvements project.

Crews are working on the left side of Lavaca, so the transit priority lane on the right side is temporarily open to help keep traffic moving.

Just make sure you get out of it once you've passed the construction.

In the meantime, plan on using the Lamar or Congress Bridge instead of the South First Street Bridge to avoid delays.
