“I mean, that is what we live here for at Texas Athletics, to have that vibrancy of the 40 Acres coming to life, to be able to do this in the spring, to bring football back here to DKR and have 50,000-plus come out is going to be an amazing experience,” Branch said.

“We call it ‘Made in Austin’ weekend, because it’s more than just a football game, it’s celebrating live music, food trucks… craft cocktails, all the things that make Austin great, you’re going to find them right here on the 40 Acres,” he continued.

Austin Mobility said it is working with Austin Police to relieve any problems by:

  • Having a traffic control plan for the events happening at Darrel K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, the new Moody Center and Bass Concert Hall
  • Monitoring signal timing and making adjustments in real-time to help reduce traffic congestion.
  • Engaging micro-mobility providers to ensure devices do not accumulate and impede pedestrian or emergency vehicle access.
