The southbound lanes of I-35 near downtown Austin were blocked off today after protesters marched onto the freeway.
A little after 1 p.m. protesters walked onto the freeway, causing the Austin Police Department to form a barricade to stop traffic.
According to the Austin Police Department the protesters were only on the freeway for ten minutes before leaving. No arrests were made at the scene.
On Saturday Black Lives Matter and Police Lives Matter groups met at the Texas State Capitol.
Police say one of those groups left the capitol and headed to I-35 where they entered the freeway. They cannot confirm which group it was.
The southbound lanes of I-35 have been reopened at this time.
