AUSTIN -- Drivers heading downtown this weekend will have to take detours near City Hall.
The City of Austin says road work will close eastbound lanes of Cesar Chavez from Lavaca to Colorado Streets from Saturday morning to Sunday evening.
For drivers heading west on Cesar Chavez, the inside lane will be closed. The northbound outside lane of South 1st Street will also be closed.
City of Austin officials say crews will be working to enhance both pedestrian safety and bike mobility at the crosswalk at the southeast corner of City Hall.
A bicycle curb will also be installed to help cyclists going north on Lavaca Street from the South 1st Street bridge.
