Traffic Anchor Erica Harpold's ACL Traffic Advice

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:06 PM CDT
It’s going to be hard to avoid Austin City Limits Music Festival traffic this weekend if you have to go anywhere near Zilker Park.

Barton Springs Road is closed until about midnight Sunday. But Lamar Boulevard, Cesar Chavez Street and of course MoPac are still open.

Festival goers looking for CapMetro shuttles will want to head over to Republic Square Park, located at the corner of 4th and Guadalupe Street. The shuttles are running Friday, Saturday and Sunday, up to an hour after the last band ends each day.

One other suggestion CapMetro has is to use the Metro Rail. One option is to park at the old Highland Mall on Airport Blvd, take the rail into downtown and then walk to Republic Square Park to catch the shuttle. The rail will run until midnight on Friday and Saturday.  The downside on that plan is that Metro Rail doesn't run on Sunday.

Another option is ride your bike! As it has had in the past, ACL will have several bike racks outside the front gates.
