tierwestah Posted September 5, 2008 Share Posted September 5, 2008 Does anyone think that Houston's freeways should use the asphault (darker color road) as opposed to concrete? I noticed driving in cities like DFW, Denver, Atlanta, Charlotte, they use the asphault roadtop which is a little bit more attractive. Using the concrete tends to appear dirty faster from exhaust, rain, and etc. For example, the road dividers in the HOV lanes look dirty, muddy, and just gives the overall appearance that this city is old and hasn't spent much money on beautification for the infrastructure.I will however give Houston credit for the amount of greenspace in the city, such as the planting of trees along 45 and 288, but the infrastructure could use alot of improvement like the work being done on Katy Freeway. I-45 should look like Katy freeway since that is the more than likely the first freeway that most visitors would see passing through town. Over there off I-45 and cullen, they really could really stand to paint the HOV road dividers since the paint is chipping. Looks really tacky!I would like to see 45 resemble something beautiful like North Central Expway (75) in Dallas. It just looks everything outside of West Houston and Galleria/Uptown has been let go?Any thoughts on this? P.S. I know this topic has probably been discussed before but i'm a little too lazy, not to mention busy to rummage through old topics. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
