City should move forward with 11th Street Bikeway

The 11th Street Bikeway project has had its detractors since the City of Houston first told the Heights neighborhood about it nearly three years ago.

Great News!

Great News!

MKT Bridge Update:

Good news! The plan documents needed for the additional repairs to address damage caused by the August 2020 fire have received expedited approval by the City of Houston and Harris County Flood Control District. With this necessary step now complete, Houston Parks Board continues to move forward with repair work to this vital trail connection.

On-site construction on the bridge is expected to resume in March, after steel is fabricated for the repairs. Construction is estimated to be complete in late Summer 2022, weather permitting. The current detour will remain in place until construction is complete.

Thank you for your continued patience. We are working diligently to restore the bridge as quickly as possible!

On National Walk to School Day, Houston and Harris County are proud of the Acres Home Safe Routes to School pilot project, which aligns Vision Zero Houston, a commitment to end traffic deaths and serious injuries on Houston streets by 2030. A healthy community requires access to safe streets and sidewalks, and safety is the highest transportation priority for the City of Houston. We are committed to ensuring that every child has the opportunity to walk or bike safely on their commute to school.

Dear Houston Bikeways, I'm saddened to have such a story to share about my ambush and robbery on the Buffalo Bayou Trail in EADO on Sunday, September 20 at 10:30am. Do you know if there is any public safety agency that patrols these trails or otherwise is tasked with ensuring their security?

The Police need to support the bicycle commuters by ticketing the vehicles and trash cans placed in bike lanes.
I went to the Post Office (634 West Calvacade) today after that rain shower and noticed that the floating bus stop just east of the USPS is blocking rain from draining in the street. There is a large puddle 4" to 6" deep in the road that can no longer get to the storm drain on the other side of the floating bus stop. Can you get someone to take a look at the storm water drainage issue created by this floating bus stop?
The City’s Transportation Team and Harris County Precinct 1 conducted an inspection of the La Branch Street bike lane on May 28....just a few minor tweaks needed before the lane is open for biking. This is another successful partnership between Harris County and the City of Houston benefitting Houstonians. More high-comfort bicycle lanes coming soon! www.houstonbikeways.org Houston Bikeways Program
They are currently pouring ramps with platform near the vehicle lanes on Cavalcade near I-45. They appear to reduce vehicle traffic to one lane or two very narrow lanes with a swerve / vere to go around these stations. What is the purpose of these stations?
