Gray Street – Houston Bikeways

Gray Street

Last Updated on

Status: Complete

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.

Project Updates

Pavement markings and striping are in progress on Gray Street. Full signal installation is expected to be complete before Spring 2020.

Route Map

Design Details

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
