Calhoun/Griggs/MLK Corridor

Status: 60% Design (Calhoun Rd Segment)


The Calhoun-Griggs-MLK Corridor is a planned project to improve street safety and connect people to work, school, parks, and other destinations in a way that supports a healthy lifestyle as outlined in the Martin Luther King Corridor Healthy Connections Study. The corridor is currently proposed as an approximately 7-mile street redesign encompassing three street segments:

  • Calhoun Rd from Wheeler Ave to Griggs Rd
  • Griggs Rd from Tierwester St to Beekman Rd
  • Martin Luther King Blvd from Griggs Rd to the Sims Bayou

Proposed street improvements include:

  • Sidewalk and curb ramp improvements
  • Adding and restriping crosswalks
  • Intersection improvements for all road users
  • New wider, protected bikeways
  • Transit improvements such as rebuilt, better-placed bus stops, and improved connections.

This project is a partnership between the City of Houston and Harris County Precinct 1. Please visit to review, provide comments, and ask questions about the project.
