TRANSFORM! is a fun weekend of interactive exploration of Congress Avenue, downtown Austin’s most celebrated street. Join us June 2 and 3 to discover its past and present. We will walk, talk, see, touch and experience all the elements of this amazing street.
 
We need your help to create its future. What makes up the design of a street? Where do the cars and bikes go? How wide is the sidewalk? Where does the rain water go? What kinds of plants and trees can live on a street? Come test some options and help us create a great plan for Congress Avenue.
