Proposed for the corner of W Loop South and Bissonnet St. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/6400-West-Loop-South-Houston-TX/16588582/
My first observations are about a couple roads in particular, but it looks like this is a wider topic which hasn't been discussed yet that I could find. Washington Ave is now 8 lanes north of I-10, plus center turn lanes and not counting a 2 lane "feeder road" to the southwest. Does anyone know the reason for this widening project? It looks to be outside the scope of the 290 widening project. I didn't realize that this section of Washington is particularly busy or that it is expected to be busy in the near future. Does anyone have any information on why this project was done? inb4 "corruption" Also, I noticed that the construction on Bellaire between Beltway 8 and just east of Gessner is still ongoing. Now they have finished the south side of the road and are tearing up the north side. Some of the medians have been removed and it looks like they could widen Bellaire from 3 lanes each way to 4 lanes here if they wanted to, if they removed some more median for turn lanes, at least in the westbound direction. The way that traffic seems to behave in this area, I could see the need for that. Most of the widening in the last decade has been occurring north of the North Loop: HomesteadYaleWheatley/EllaLittle YorkParkerFultonW Gulf BankAldine WestfieldAldine Mail RoadLeyFallbrookTC JesterPinemontSpur 261/Shepherd lanes to/from I-45Others? Are there any other realistic projects on the arterials that could be done inside the Beltway? Not everything can be widened to 6 lanes or needs to be. But perhaps improving arterials through widening, grade separation, or synchronization could take a little pressure of the freeways.
