South Congress section

SoCo, directly on axis with the state capitol, is probably the trendiest shopping street in Austin. Its section changes from five to eight lanes, but here it's five highway lanes plus diagonal parking on both sides. It's marked on the bike map as a "caution" route for bicycles, but has bike lanes in several isolated stretches. Diagonal parking creates a de facto space for bikes, but reverse-angle parking would be so much nicer. Of course, a boulevard would be nicer still, but given the challenge of working with TxDOT, one can only dream...
