​​View up Capitol Avenue towards the CapitolAUSTIN – The City of Austin and the Downtown Austin Alliance (DAA) are in the planning process of reconfiguring the 1.25-mile stretch of Congress Ave. from the Capitol to Riverside Dr.

The iconic road is being reconfigured in order to create a "human-centric place and preeminent civic destination," according to a new report by the city and the DAA.

The current plans include:

  • a bike lane running up the center of Congress Ave. to the Texas Capitol;
  • flourishing ground-floor businesses stretching the length of the grand thoroughfare; and
  • a street tied into the wider walkability and mobility goals of the Central Business District.​
