Pedestrian Update – October 1, 2020

Walking Routes
Look for red pedestrian signs along sidewalks in the Capitol Complex. The six foot A-frame signs have a map and a QR code for easier access to the campus map. Use your smart phone to scan the QR code and open a pdf of the Capitol Complex map you can take along with you.

Safe Crosswalks:

To cross MLK Blvd. at:

  • Colorado – Both crosswalks are accessible for travel to the Blanton Café or the Bullock Museum.
  • Congress (at the Bullock Museum) – Use the Colorado and MLK Blvd. crosswalk.
  • Brazos (at the ERS Building) – Use the (Blanton) north sidewalk along MLK Blvd. only. Cross MLK Blvd. using the eastern crosswalk at Brazos and the sidewalk along the ERS building to travel south.
  • San Jacinto (to go to the Capitol) – Use the (Blanton) north sidewalk along MLK Blvd. only and 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 lane closures!
  • Watch your step. Look for uneven pavement and detours due to construction in the area.
Closed Sidewalks:  
  • Closed – MLK Blvd. east bound sidewalk from Congress Avenue (from the Bullock Museum) to San Jacinto.
  • Closed – Westside (southbound) sidewalk along the 18th block of Brazos and the westside crosswalk over MLK Blvd. at Brazos.
  • Closed – West side (north bound) sidewalks along San Jacinto from MLK Blvd. to 18th Street.
  • Closed – South (east bound) sidewalk from Parking Garage G on Trinity to San Jacinto (Scholz Garten) is closed. Use the sidewalk along the Central Services Building to travel between San Jacinto and Trinity Streets.
