Most other nearby streets will be closed due to the Democratic National Convention.  To avoid the confusion and congestion in Uptown, use Brookshire Freeway eastbound to the College St. exit (Exit 3A) to 11th St. (continue straight) to McDowell St. (continue straight) as an alternate route from the I-77/Johnson & Wales area to the Government Center/Courthouse area.
