Fourth Avenue is one again taken over by a jumble of white tents and confusing road closures. With so many people attending the Winter Street Fair among other downtown events this weekend, parking can be a headache.
Here's how to get around this weekend according to Park Tucson:
This weekend there are free shuttles to the 4th Ave. Street Fair from both Pennington St. and Tyndall Garages.
Also, this weekend only, Park Tucson will not be enforcing residential permits in the neighborhoods surrounding the Street Fair, so extra street parking will be available.
The Sun Link Street Car has been diverted because of the tents covering its tracks, so riders can board Sun Tran buses from temporary end point stops at 4th Ave. and 9th St. and University Boulevard and 3rd Ave. to reach the street car's usual destinations.
So, don't worry UA students, you can sill get to your finals today!
For the entirety of the Street Fair (now through Sunday, Dec. 9) 4th Ave. will be closed to all traffic from University to 8th St. with the exception of 6th St. which will remain open. With over 300,000 people estimated to attend, the whole area is best avoided by car if possible. Walk, bike or ride to the fair and save yourself the parking headache.
