To provide a safe connection between Third Ward and Midtown across SH-288, a high-comfort bikeway is planned on Gray Street between the Columbia Tap Trail and Bagby Street. This east-west corridor will link these two neighborhoods to each other, as well as the larger regional network being created through the Harris County Precinct One Partnership.
Pavement markings and striping are in progress on Gray Street. Full signal installation is expected to be complete before Spring 2020.
The Gray Street Bikeway is designed as a two-way cycle track along the south curb. A few key points:
Street parking is maintained on both sides
All driveway access points are maintained
Visibility is increased at corners by striping existing no parking zones
At high-volume left turns (Hamilton, Milam, Smith), bikes and cars receive separate signal phases
