A cheaper solution is to put up barricades on those lanes where the double white lines currently exist. I wish they'd also do it on the West Loop North exit off of 59/69. I've seen asshats literally use the break down lane and force their way through. I constantly pray that someone will play chicken with one of those morons and force them to go head-on into the concrete. Sadly, the timing has never been right for me to do it.
The proper thing to do would be to eliminate that left side exit for Spur 527 and make it a right side exit with a flyover over NB and SB 59 to eliminate all that weaving. I brought that up at the meeting at HCC, but they claimed they couldn't do that without taking property. Sounds like BS, but I don't think the representative was an engineer.
Well, technically this thread is only for the Avenida Houston promenade, the convention center itself, and the GHP Building next door. Hampton Inn/Homewood Suites has its own thread on this forum, hence why it would be considered "off topic".. but im not trying to nit pick, was just trying to help you out. The discussion does often get side tracked into the other developments in the area though, since as you say, they are part of the overall Convention District.
^^^ AVENIDA HOUSTON along with it's many areas of art, is considered a very integral part of the DOWNTOWN CONVENTION DISTRICT. HAMPTON INN/HOMEWOOD SUITES resides within the DOWNTOWN CONVENTION DISTRICT. many of GONZO'S exemplary art exhibits often reside within the AVENIDA HOUSTON/DOWNTOWN CONVENTION DISTRICT. therefore, not "off-topic" and very easily comprehensible as per our many HAIF patrons.....
