Bagby Street is a major thoroughfare on the far west side of Downtown Houston near Interstate 45. It is a popular corridor for pedestrians with many local attractions including Sam Houston Park, Tranquility Park, the Hobby City and Houston City Hall. With such a large volume of pedestrians in the area, the Downtown Redevelopment Authority (DRA)/ TIRZ No. 3 developed an improvement project that focuses on the safety of those on foot and behind the wheel.
Our team is working alongside the DRA/TIRZ No. 3 to lead the final design effort for the complete reconstruction of Bagby Street from I-45 to Franklin Street.
The street will be transformed into a corridor fitting its unique position. Vehicular travel lanes will be reduced to accommodate wider pedestrian and bicycle facilities. A raised cycle track will be incorporated at the pedestrian level – the first of its kind in Houston. The streetscape will also be improved with enhanced surfaces, trees, plantings, and lighting.
Construction is underway and is progressing ahead of the originally scheduled completion date of December 2021.
