Patterson Street – Houston Bikeways

Patterson Street

Last Updated on


The Patterson Bikeway aspires to create a safe connection for bicyclists between White Oak and Buffalo Bayous. First identified through the Super Neighborhood 22 Transportation Plan in 2010, the route is planned along Patterson and other neighborhood streets through the West End and Magnolia Grove neighborhoods. The project also includes an enhanced crossing at Washington and Patterson, one of 12 intersections evaluated by a team of experts through a recent Road Safety Audit.

Project Updates

Thank you all who helped us test a new street design on Jackson Hill Street at Scotland Street on Saturday, January 25. The Pop-Up Bike Lane was a big hit with Buffalo Bayou trail users and passersby.  Your input will help shape the final proposal for the project.

Route Map

The route extends south from White Oak Bayou to Buffalo Bayou. Patterson Street is proposed to be a shared on-street route from White Oak Bayou to Blossom Street. Blossom is proposed to be a shared on-street bike route connecting to a dedicated on-street bike lane on Jackson Hill, ending at Buffalo Bayou.
