Walking Routes
New App! – Check out our new interactive map to find the fastest route to your destination.

Select your starting location and your destination, and the app will show you the best walking route.The six-foot, red A-frame signs positioned outside the construction zone have a map and a QR code for easier access to the campus map. Use your smartphone to scan the QR code and open the new interactive map. You can also visit the website to download a pdf map that you can take with you on your visit to the Capitol Complex.Safe Crosswalks:

To cross MLK Blvd. at:

  • Colorado – Both crosswalks are accessible for travel to the Blanton or the Bullock Museum.
  • Congress (at the Bullock Museum) – Watch out for construction vehicles entering and exiting at Congress. To be safe, please use the Colorado and MLK Blvd. crosswalk instead of the crosswalk at Congress Avenue.
  • Brazos (at the ERS Building) – Use the north sidewalk (near the Blanton Museum) along MLK Blvd. only. Cross MLK Blvd. using the eastern crosswalk at Brazos and the sidewalk next to the ERS building to travel south.
  • San Jacinto (to go to the Capitol) – Use the north sidewalk (near the Blanton Museum) along MLK Blvd. only. Cross MLK Blvd. using the eastern crosswalk at San Jacinto. To travel south toward the Capitol on San Jacinto Street use the eastern sidewalk closest to the bridge over the creek.
  • Watch out for construction vehicles and workers!
  • Watch your step. Look for uneven pavement and detours due to construction in the area.
Closed Sidewalks: 
  • Closed: MLK Blvd. eastbound (south) sidewalk from Congress Avenue (next to the Bullock Museum) to Brazos. The bike lane is also closed. DO NOT WALK on the construction side of this block due to the Texas Capitol Mall construction.
  • Closed: Westside (southbound) sidewalk along the 18th block of Brazos and the westside crosswalk over MLK Blvd. at Brazos due to the 1801 Congress Office Building construction.
  • Closed: South (eastbound) sidewalk from Parking Garage G on Trinity to San Jacinto (next to Scholz Garten) is closed. Use the sidewalk along the Central Services building to travel between San Jacinto and Trinity Streets.
