(ABC 6 NEWS) -- A street between the Pacelli school buildings in Austin will remain open.

Monday night, Austin City Council voted against a plan to close a block of 3rd Avenue to create a campus-type setting that school officials said would be safer for students.

Council members voted against the plan after many people, including some parishoners, expressed concerns about the impact on traffic in the area.
