We couldn’t have asked for better weather to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Eastex Freeway Forest Section 3 and 4 Drainage Improvement project today! This is one of many flood prevention projects to keep you, your family, your property, and our communities safe.

This project will reduce the risk of structural flooding from storm events by increasing stormwater capacity in this area.

The improvements will assist in more effective drainage through the neighborhoods and complement additional local drainage improvements proposed by Harris County.

The making of a glow-in-the-dark bike trail.

This project at Alexander Deussen Park in Harris County Precinct One includes a trail of glow stones that will activate throughout the day and glow at night! It also features safety elements that align with Harris County Vision Zero with four bike crossings across Deussen Parkway to allow for safer passage of bicyclists.
Completion is scheduled for the end of October.

It’s never too early to teach kids to #TakeActionAgainstDistraction

Here are four tips from @Safe Kids Worldwide to help teach kids to walk safely:
1. Teach kids to put phones, headphones, and devices down when crossing the street. It’s important to reinforce the message with teenagers.
2. Pull headphones down or turn off the volume before crossing the street.
3. Be aware of others who may be distracted and speak up when you see someone who is in danger.
4. If kids need to use a cell phone, teach them to stop walking and find a safe area to talk.

Harris County Permits remains open to the public and has enacted a social-distancing and sanitation policy. Appointments are still accepted; however, appointments will be over-the-counter. Face-to-face meetings are limited as much as possible. This is an effort to decrease the spread of COVID-19.

🟢 Cashiers are not accepting or processing cash payments for permit or inspection fees.
🟢 Customers may pay by check at the cashier's window or by credit card in-person at the kiosk located in the Permits Office Lobby at 10555 Northwest Freeway, Houston TX 77092.
🟢 Customers may also pay by credit card online at https://epermits.harriscountytx.gov

We would like to share an important message from Harris County Vision Zero.
What is Vision Zero?
It is a strategy to eliminate traffic fatalities and severe injuries among all road users, and to ensure safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all.

Have a “traffic safe” walk this summer. Here are three easy tips to enjoy a safer walk:
• Walk facing traffic and as far from traffic as possible.
• Keep alert at all times. Don’t be distracted by electronic devices that take your eyes (and ears) off the road.
• Cross streets at crosswalks or intersections, where drivers expect pedestrians. Look for cars in all directions, including those turning left or right.

These are just a few tips on how to enjoy a safe walk when sidewalks aren’t available. What else do you do to stay #trafficsafe on your walk? Let us know in the comments!
