In support of the new multi-purpose arena, a separate project will realign Red River Street from the 1800 block to East Dean Keeton Street. The Red River realignment will have multiple travel impacts beginning in Spring 2020. Upon complettion, the existing Red River Street will be formally vacated from its intersection with Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to its intersection with Clyde Littlefield Drive. 

As a result, we anticipate significant impacts to both traffic congestion and parking availability on campus. We will continue to post updated information as it becomes available. 

Tips for Parking on Campus 

  • Plan to arrive early to all events.
  • San Jacinto Garage, Manor Garage, Lots 37 and 39 will still be available options for UT parking. City metered parking is also available along Dean Keeton. 
  • We strongly encourage carpooling and rideshare options to attend events on campus.
