Free parking is available at the State of Texas parking garages located off Trinity Street between 12th St. and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. There is also ample on-street parking in the vicinity of the capitol complex. Meter parking downtown on Saturday is FREE.
Please note that if you are driving to the start of the race on race morning from any areas west of the Capitol, 15th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. will be closed on race morning between Lavaca Street and San Jacinto Blvd.. We suggest taking 5th St. to get across downtown and then taking Trinity St. north to the available parking garages.
