 Be aware some of the detour streets are narrow streets and cannot accommodate large vehicles! One way streets near the square are notated.

October 9, 2019 - Drivers should now be aware, San Augustine Street on the Center Square is blocked to facilitate construction involved in the Downtown Streetscape Project. At this time a detour is sending vehicles approaching the square on the San Augustine Street side down Houston Street. At this time drivers are still able to turn on Austin Street driving away from the square.

October 8, 2019 - Preparation for the Downtown Stretscape Construction project in Center are currently underway, and travelers need to make plans to take alternate routes. 

Austin Street is at this time blocked by chain link fence panels, and San Augustine Street has another section being assembled. Drivers are now not be able to make the turn off Nacogdoches Street onto Austin Street as the roadway is closed.

A detour is being established, and although the signs are not yet fully in place, it appears drivers will be redirected down Nacogdoches Street and turn on Houston Street to travel past the courthouse. 

When the detour is more clear, we will add further information on Shelby County Today.
