ATTENTION DRIVERS! Here are the street closures we'll see on the Fourth of July due to the Freedom Over Texas event.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Although TxDOT construction crews are giving Houston drivers a break from major interstate closures this holiday weekend, we'll still see street closures around the Shell Freedom Over Texas event on Sunday at Eleanor Tinsley Park.


On mobile, use two fingers to zoom in to specific roads.

Large portions of Memorial Drive and the Allen Parkway will be closed in both directions. So, if you want to watch the fireworks from Eleanor Tinsley Park, the city says you'll need to park downtown and walk.

Keep in mind, if you head to this area to watch the fireworks, there are no public activities or amenities.

Here is a full list of street closures for the big event:

Closed Sunday, July 4, 7:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.

  • Allen Parkway north and southbound exit ramps from I-45
