Downtown Tulsa Roads Closed For Mayfest; Shuttle Available Saturday & Sunday
TULSA, Oklahoma - There's a lot going on in downtown Tulsa this week - which means drivers need to be patient and plan for road closures. Mayfest, Hop Jam and Drillers games with fireworks are all taking place north of downtown in the Tulsa Arts and Greenwood Districts.
Martin Luther King Boulevard is closed from Interstate 244 to Archer Street as Mayfest kicks off Friday.
Detroit is now a two-way detour between I-244 and Archer to help drivers access the area. Cameron and Brady Streets are also closed for a block on both sides from MLK to Boston.
If you're wondering where you can park for Mayfest, organizers suggest downtown street parking as one option. It's free on the weekends and after 5 p.m. on week days, so you'll have to pay to park street side on Friday before 5 p.m.
You can also take a shuttle from the TCC Center for Creativity. It runs Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
There are also a number of parking garages and lots downtown, but they aren't free.
The City of Tulsa has a guide for operating the downtown parking meters. Learn more here.
At 8 a.m. Saturday, May 18, Main will close between the Fairfield Hotel (111 N. Main) and Mexicali (14 W. Mathew Brady St.). Hop Jam organizers start setting up at midnight for the Sunday concert. The area will be fenced off on Cameron and Boston Sunday for concert goers.
Detroit Avenue and Martin Luther King Boulevard are to reopen at 9 p.m. Sunday, May 19.
All roads in the Tulsa Arts District should be open by 8 a.m. Monday, May 20.
