TBG in Texas Architect | Quitman Corridor Improvements
We are excited to share a TBG project feature in the September/October issue of Texas Architect Magazine!
Together with Harris County Precinct 2, City of Houston, Houston METRO and the Greater Northside Management District, TBG has been working on the Quitman Corridor project – a 1.5 mile streetscape just north of downtown Houston – to reduce the two existing 18 ft. vehicular travel lanes to 11 ft. each and integrate a dedicated bi-directional cycle track.
From Texas Architect…
The project ensures that the grade for pedestrian level of service will significantly improve via the creation of a safe and accessible pedestrian realm and the addition of bike lanes separated from both pedestrians and motor vehicles. Thoughtful landscaping, cohesive street lighting, and wayfinding signage will ease use of the district, while public art by local artists will keep community values present in the experience of the improved spaces. In addition, streetscape amenities, including benches, shelters, and bike racks, will be located throughout.
