Anytime streets will be closed for public events

Austin Marathon, February 17th – Street Closures

This Austin Marathon / Livestrong Marathon is this weekend, Sunday, February 17th.   The marathon features a route that will be in our neighborhood for several hours in the morning.

Bouldin and Dawson residents will experience more difficulty in coming and going from their homes during the event, since Congress and 1st street  will both be used for the race.  Below is the access route for residents living between Riverside Drive and Oltorf  — these access points are APD Controlled Intersections.

The live music listed in the table below approximates the location of live music in your area, but the bands are not permitted to be on private property, and are limited to performing in the Right-of-Way (ROW) only.

RIGHT-OF-WAY (as defined by City Code) means land dedicated or reserved for streets, utilities, or other public facilities.

1902 S. Congress

If you or your neighbors notice bands that are not performing in the ROW, but on private property (parking lots, commercial property, etc.) please call and report this to 311.  APD and The City of Austin Music Office will be monitoring this event, so calling 311 is the best way to report.

If neighbors are concerned about loud music prior to 10 am, the instructions below provide details on what and how to report that to 311.

311 Loud Music Service Request (SR)
The Music Division and Austin 311 launched a Loud Music Service Request (SR), which captures sound complaint data within the city including but not limited to: location of music, days of the week of noise disturbance, and timeframe of noise disturbance.  The purpose of the Loud Music SR is to provide residents with better customer service regarding loud music disturbances and to acquire sufficient data for the Music Division to analyze and find various trends of loud music.
