CITY OF HOUSTON PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC STUDY IN THE WORKS
A Travis parent reports that they recently called Houston 311 to request a crosswalk with flashing red lights for the pedestrian crossing at Houston Avenue and Bayland. A representative from the City of Houston will be out soon to conduct a pedestrian traffic study. COH would need to see 20 pedestrians crossing Houston Avenue at Bayland to install this device to help parents and children cross the street more safely. There would be lights installed on Houston Avenue that would only flash red when someone pushes the cross button. If you cross at this intersection, be on the lookout to ensure you’re counted!
