The DWC recently began holding contested case hearings in Austin at the new Barbara Jordan Building in the Capital Complex, located at 1601 Congress Avenue.  However, parking and entering the building is so complicated that it prompted DWC to create the following instructional video:

The video discusses parking options “if you are driving to your Austin hearing.”  Due to the parking situation, you might consider some easier alternatives than driving like taking the bus or an e-scooter.  The video also reminds participants not to show up more than 15 minutes before the hearing because they won’t be allowed in the building before then.
