Public Meeting Nov. 16 on the Lower Westheimer Corridor Study

As part of ReBuild Houston, the City of Houston is seeking input for improvements to the Lower Westheimer Corridor. At this public workshop and open house, residents and stakeholders will receive a summary of the survey results and public comment received thus far, and will be asked to consider various options for the corridor. These options will align with the objective and principles for Lower Westheimer. More information about the workshop will be posted to the project website.

The workshop and open house will be held: Wednesday, November 16th 5:00 – 8:00 PM Metropolitan Multi-Services Center 1475 W Gray St

The improved roadway design for Westheimer Road between Shepherd Drive and Bagby Street and for Elgin Street between Bagby and Main Streets will consider the needs of all Houstonians while meeting the goals of ReBuild Houston to preserve and enhance the overall character of the roadway and improve mobility and safety. Results from the study will be incorporated into the final recommendations and design concept for improving the street. The recommended design will be incorporated into the current capital improvement project along Elgin/Westheimer Road between Main Street and Montrose Boulevard. The Lower Westheimer Corridor Study is co-led by the City’s Public Works & Engineering (PWE) and Planning & Development (P&D) Departments, and advised by a Stakeholder Advisory Committee. Please attend the upcoming workshop on November 16 to share your suggestions for the Lower Westheimer Corridor!
