Hempstead Road Reconstruction

Recommended Posts

Hi all, was wondering if anyone had schematics of the Hempstead Rd rebuild near 11th street. They are clearly rebuilding the rail road system overhead. The only thing I can find it from TXDOT but has no schematics that I can find:

Anything would be great!

Awww... that little jog through the railroad underpass was a nice bit of time travel.

haha thanks. I wish they would have redone the intersection down below. People constantly have to cross all the lanes just to make a u-turn to go north... very dangerous most of the time.

I had assumed this would be revisited eventually. They even put in entrance and exit ramps onto/from 610 that lead to nowhere (yet) that are clearly for the Hempstead Highway.

Saw an article in Houston Chronicle about Hempstead Highway but it is focused on the portion on the other side of 610 all the way to 99.

It's a bit weird given the HOV lanes on 290 already... Plus there's so many businesses along this road. Seems like such a waste, just build an elevated route above the current HOV.

 

Where is the high speed rail supposed to go again?

While I agree it’s kind of ridiculous to consider building a toll road here already, 290 inside the beltway also serves as the connector to the 249 corridor via 8. Also, it wouldn’t surprise me if one day there’s a Westpark-like toll road down Spencer Rd (FM 529)—that would connect nicely to a Hempstead toll road. The Southwest side is served by Westpark Toll, Southwest Frwy., and Fort Bend Pkwy. whereas this quadrant only has 290 to funnel into Loop 610. Ugh, but geez...more concrete.
