Let's create a better Washington Avenue for all! The Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) has established a partnership with The City of Houston to develop a corridor mobility plan for Washington Avenue.

Give your input virtually through the map and activities on this website below. These will be open through May 31:


Project Overview

The Washington Avenue Corridor Study (WACS) guides short and long-range transportation reinvestments. It will encourage development of multimodal transportation options, increase safety, improve traffic flow, reduce congestion, and improve air quality. WACS will maintain the historic character of the corridor and foster a thriving, sustainable, and livable neighborhood.

A critical component of this study is safety analysis. The majority of the corridor is considered a component of the City of Houston’s “High Injury Network”. There are limited locations for safe pedestrian crossings along the corridor. The study will conclude with a prioritized list of recommended improvements and implementation strategy. Recommendations will offer equal emphasis on all modes of transportation and offer alternatives prior to final recommendations.
