City of Jersey Village Plans Commuter Rail TOD

Recommended Posts

In anticipation that the City of Jersey Village could become a stop on a future commuter rail line to Houston, officials are considering the creation of a $40 million, transit-oriented development on the south side of Hwy. 290 that would become the new city center.

Haven't we discussed 290 commuter rail, and basically ruled it out because of the freight and spur usage?
