Hutchins Street – Houston Bikeways

Hutchins Street

Last Updated on

Status: Complete

A high-comfort bikeway is planned for Hutchins Street between Gray Street and Cleburne Street. Construction will also include ADA curb ramp repair, sidewalk repair and pavement repair in targeted locations along the route. This route is part of the Third Ward Bikeway Network and is funded by Harris County Precinct One.

Route Map

A dedicated on-street bike lane (blue) is planned from Cleburne St. to Hadley St. A shared on-street bike route (purple) is planned from Hadley St. to Gray St.

Segment Details

The following illustrations show the general layout of the route in different contexts. Two median closures are planned at Elgin and Alabama to improve safety for bicyclists and pedestrians. Simplified crossings reduces crossing lengths and wait times for pedestrians and bicyclists crossing the street as well as calms traffic on the street.

For a detailed view of the corridor, please refer to the final plans below.
