Does anybody (besides me) have any recollection of Shellwood? It was on the corner of 518 and 528 in Friendswood, and was bascially a park for Shell employees. They always had their company picnics there. It was very wooded and had a pool, tennis and basketball courts, picnic tables, etc.... I always knew where it was, but my Mom's friend told me there was a subdivision where it once was (I never knew that it was bounded by 528). The "lake" is still there, and is located right off of the creek (Clear Creek perhaps?). I was wondering if anybody could share some memories of it.
The article recently posted by Subdude on roundabouts compelled me to comment on the redesigned intersection of FM528/Nasa Pkwy & I45. It has been "finished" for a few months now, but it is hardly an improvement. Now i know the old configuration wasn't a roundabout, it was more of a cloverleaf, but it sure was more efficient than the current stoplight arrangement. I used to never have a problem there and now i sit through several light cycles everyday. Contributing to the problem is the westbound NASA Pkwy striping arrangement that puts the left lane coming out of Webster as left-turn only and leaves the right lane to split off into THREE lanes! (two through-lanes and the right-turn lane). It is always a mess there with everyone in the left lane trying to move right, while the other people just hold their places instead of feeding to the right to fill up the other lanes. The simple sollution would be to restripe the road so the left-lane feeds into the left through-lane, thus creating an actual fixed-length left-turn lane off of it. Then restripe the right lane so that it feeds into the right through-lane (and the right-turn lane) only. Anyone want to do some midnight painting?? Thanks for the new bypass TxDot!
