Hey! Right now, I'm composing a list of buildings and structures demolished for the Katy Freeway expansion. It's extensive, but currently in a draft form, and I'd like your help in expanding it or making it better somehow. Because HAIF doesn't allow editing of posts after 2 hours, I'll make later updates, possibly including maps of some sort. major sources: http://www.houstonfreeways.com/modern/2005-04-23_i10_row_clearance.aspx http://www.texasfreeway.com/houston/photos/i10w/i10_right-of-way.shtml WESTBOUND INTERSTATE 10 This counts buildings as if heading west on I-10, looking out the right, major roads are marked. After a warehouse with a section cut in it for an MKT spur, the clearances begin. first is an office/light industrial building WIRT ROAD office building, northwest corner of Wirt Road and I-10 (picture seen in TexasFreeway.com) two office buildings (or apartments?) to the east of the Key Credit Union building Key Credit Union Building (northeast corner of Bingle and I-10) BINGLE ROAD part of the Westside Family YMCA (may operate under a different name, but a building was lost) VOSS ROAD ALL the houses on Cunningham Street, including the road itself. a cul-de-sac of houses Ciro's Cibo Italiani and the strip mall next to it CAMPBELL ROAD office building at northwest corner of Campbell and I-10 almost everything between Adkins and Anne is demolished, including office buildings, warehouse-like buildings, and St. James Furniture. Calico Corners is actually spared, though still moves out. just east of Lowe's two office buildings (appear to be office buildings, at least) two buildings near Lowe's, possibly commercial BUNKER HILL ROAD most buildings between Witte Road and Bunker Hill were demolished, if not for the freeway (although some were), became part of a huge shopping center anchored by H-E-B and others WITTE ROAD two buildings between the apartment complex and Witte Road a few units of an apartment complex gas station at northeast corner of Gessner and I-10 (appears to have Citgo colors, according to the Houston Freeways page) GESSNER DRIVE a stand-alone restaurant at the northwest corner of Gessner and I-10 (don't know name) part of a strip mall at the northwest corner of Gessner and I-10 (the strip mall was completely demolished later, though unrelated to the consruction) part of a storage-looking building just west of Conrad Sauer Road (rest of building intact) Bennigan's - just south of Chili's (which survived) BELTWAY 8 Igloo Manufacturing Facility - turned into retention pond, worth noting it was once connected to the MKT line via spur some buildings at the northeast corner of Biltmore and I-10 After this point, the only thing that appears to be razed for construction is some apartments near Sherwood Oaks - some units demolished, complex as a whole clipped ---END LIMITS OF WESTBOUND EXPANSION--- This is the Eastbound demolitions. Although there are some building changes (particularly a strip mall that was partially demolished, and then later demolished, plus some new restaurants), the main clearance starts at Wirt Road. gas station - though it looks like it could've been spared, on the west side of west side of Wirt Road.
