Houston19514 Posted July 2, 2014 Share Posted July 2, 2014 If I read the pdf right, it's suggesting that bus operations will be in general traffic (not in its own lane) along the stretch on 610??? Where traffic is the worst? Seems like they are setting this thing up to fail, no wonder why it's so cheap. See page 8: TxDOT and Uptown are in the early development stages of an elevated dedicated bus or HOV facility in the median of IH 610 from the Northwest TransitCenter to Post Oak Boulevard (Figure A-4). The elevated dedicated bus or HOV facility would replace the majority of the mixed traffic bus operation north of the Project (the Connection to METRO’s Northwest Transit Center) as shown in Figure A-1 with a grade separated, dedicated transit facility. Also, TxDOT announced just last week that they will be providing $25 million to build a dedicated bus lane along Loop 610, ensuring the second piece of a planned bus rapid transit corridor in the Uptown area. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
