Near Northside

In the Near Northside Action Plan developed through Mayor Turner’s Complete Communities Initiative,  residents established three mobility and infrastructure goals: build great streets, improve neighborhood mobility, and expand bike lanes and facilities. The proposed bikeway network under the city-county partnership seeks to meet each of these goals by improving on-street bicycle infrastructure, creating safe intersection crossings for bicyclists and pedestrians and connecting residents to major destinations within and around Near Northside.

The City of Houston Planning and Development Department has met with and will continue to meet with Near Northside community members to discuss proposed bikeways:


Project Updates

Proposed Phase 1 Bikeways are in design! Harris County Precinct 1 and consultants are analyzing multiple design options for downtown connections featuring Burnett, Maury, McKee, and Lyons plus north-south connections Hardy and Elysian.


Proposed Bikeways

Phase 1 represents routes that passed a preliminary feasibility analysis. Phase 1 – Further Study are routes that are of high interest to the community, but will need further research due to their complexity. Phase 2 are bikeway routes also identified by the community, but are not feasible to implement by April 2019, as they are long-term projects. The yellow highlighted segment, Project by Others, indicates that there are plans to improve street and bike infrastructure in that area by an entity outside of the City of Houston.
