    • There's a post earlier in the thread by MaxConcrete that had links to the schematics, but the website that hosts the images is down.   Those would help even though Houston drivers like to seem to take them out, but what they really need to do is add Chenevert to the I-69/US 59 exit sign from the toll lane as well. Signage clarity is lacking in some aspects of this project.
    • Here's a few problems I've noticed from this project. 1. They placed a brand new I-610/Hurricane Evacuation Route sign on 288 NB at Bellfort, but the arrow on the sign points to the right toward the old exit location even though the exits to 610 have been moved to the left. Link showing the sign not present during construction: https://goo.gl/maps/vALTD5Ex7FLwY5PQA 2. The highway sign pavement markers at 288NB and I-69/US 59 say TX-59 instead of US 59.   3. At the same interchange, the pavement markings and the overhead signs don't match. The pavement and a sign shows the 2 left lanes will take you to I-45. In actuality, the #1 left lane turns into a lane that allows you to either go to I-45 or exit at Chenevert, while the #2 left lane is an exit only lane for Chenevert. Pavement says this lane will take you to I-45, but the overhead sign says otherwise. Driving along, you enter the #2 lane to access I-45 based upon this sign and the pavement marking in the previous photo. The next sign shows your lane is going to Chenevert instead of I-45. Exit only? You'd better get over now if you want to get on I-45. Forget what that sign said 1/2 mile ago!
    • I notice that there's no trace of a parking garage in this rendering, and wonder how deep they'd be willing to go for underground parking. Perhaps instead they have somewhere close by in mind. Is it sheer coincidence that Kroger is shuttering just as this project is getting underway? While Montrose Blvd is making progress to become a more pedestrian friendly destination street, the focus seems to be more on Lower Westheimer. A parking garage adequate for both this development and another could be squeezed onto the Kroger lot, especially if the developers petition the city to abandon that block of Lovett Blvd. (which would almost certainly be granted).
    • This is also about to start in the area as well. Imagine being able to comfortably walk from Midtown to Shepherd or Kirby. 
    • Does anyone know how this is supposed to look (schematics) ?
