Public Meeting: Gulf Coast Rail District Underpasses

Public Meeting: Gulf Coast Rail District Underpasses

The Gulf Coast Rail District invites you to attend a public meeting to provide input on two proposed roadway underpasses under railroad crossings in the East End on Tuesday, June 30, 2015 from 5-7p.m. at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church Gymnasium (2405 Navigation Blvd.). Parking will be available along Ann Street behind the church.

To be discussed:

Commerce Street/Navigation Boulevard

  • Reconstruct existing Navigation underpass
  • Construct new Commerce underpass to intersect with Navigation underpass
  • Construct new bicycle lanes and sidewalks
  • Close railroad crossing at Hutchins

York Street

  • Construct new underpass on York below three sets of railroad tracks • Convert York and Sampson to two-way streets within project area
  • Construct new bicycle lanes and sidewalks
  • Close railroad crossing at Sampson between Rusk and McKinney
  • Close railroad crossing at McKinney between York and Milby
  • Close railroad crossing at Milby between Woodleigh and Polk

The purpose of these projects is to enhance safety, mobility, air quality, and emergency response time by eliminating at-grade railroad crossings. Completion of the projects will allow for a railroad quiet zone from Runnels Street to Leeland Street. Railroad crossings will not be closed until underpasses are open to traffic. Both projects will require limited additional right-of-way.

All interested persons are invited to attend this public meeting. The public meeting will be conducted in English. Persons interested in attending the meeting who have special communication or accommodation needs, or need an interpreter, are encouraged to contact Maureen Crocker at 713-843-5451. Requests should be made at least two days prior to the public meeting. Every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate these needs.

Mason Park Needs Your Help to Earn a $20,000 Makeover

You may recall our ask last year to cast your vote to help earn a $20,000 award to the East End's own Ingrando Park. The good news is that you listened, you voted, and thanks to your help, Ingrando Park received funding for new futsal court from a Meet Me at the Park grant. Well the great news keeps coming: the Meet Me at the Park program is back and our very own Mason Park has been nominated for its own $20,000 makeover!
