Through Design Phase I, the Authority worked to analyze the Bagby Street corridor in terms of existing and future traffic conditions such that the Authority can consider future capital improvement projects to reconstruct the roadway and associated infrastructure within the right-of-way. The traffic impact analysis and preliminary engineering study are complete.

Bagby Street Improvement Plan – Final Report

The Authority has engaged a civil engineering firm to lead Phase II, project engineering and design. The project will include pedestrian enhancements, beautification elements, the addition of signature lighting and bike facilities, and an upgrade to the corridor’s storm sewer and drainage system. The design phase is expected to take one year followed by an estimated two-year construction phase.

As a component of this project, the Authority and the City of Houston General Services Department will create a development plan that reimagines the west side of Downtown to better support core civic functions and establishes a framework for future mobility, government, commercial and residential redevelopment.

The total project budget is $28,800,000.

The Authority hosted a Project Open House on Thursday, December 6, 2018, from 5:30-7 PM at the Julia Ideson Building Reading Room. 550 McKinney St, Houston, TX 77002. The presentation can be viewed at the link below.
