    Regarding my question on reducing the lanes from 4 to 3: So your answer means, essentially, that the COH might adjust the Feagan light if there's too much congestion. Correct? There are no other lights along this stretch. Or maybe the light at Washington will be adjusted? Thanks, Michelle

    We anticipate improving the level of service at the signalized intersections will also improve mobility for vehicular traffic.

    Could you clarify if the buffer is physically separated from the road? In the diagrams there is something in the buffer which appears to be a physical barrier. Is this true and if so, what is it?

    Kevin asked 10 days ago

    There will be striping and not a physical barrier between the vehicular lanes of traffic and bicycle lanes.

    follow up to kevins question, will the bike lane have a physical barrier protecting it? If the buffer zone is going to be just paint some drivers will just ignore it.

    Thank you for your question. There will be striping and not a physical barrier between the vehicular lanes of traffic and bicycle lanes.

    Is there a plan to continue the road improvements with bike lanes north of Washington Ave?

    Keith asked 11 days ago

    Thank you for your question. There has been discussion to continue the bike lane from Washington to I-10 in different projects. For more information please visit Houston Bikeways. Here you will be able to explore the full bikeway network that is planned for the City of Houston.

    Are these protected bike lanes?

    Kevin asked 29 days ago

    Thank you for the question. There will be a buffer, no drive zone of 3-feet between the vehicular lanes and bike lanes. Please take a look at the typical section exhibits on the project page for more information.

    Given the reduction from 4 lanes to 3 with this project, what is being done to mitigate the increase in stop n go northbound rush hour traffic, which currently can get backed up all the way to Dallas St? It will now get backed up probably to West Grey, once this is finished. Has the impact on rush hour traffic been analyzed, and the impact of more cars being stuck in stop and go traffic for longer amounts of time?

    mwolpert asked 11 days ago

    Thank you for the question. The project was assessed in a detailed engineering study during the planning stage, and that data, along with an extensive public engagement process to hear desires and concerns of stakeholders, guided the design of this project. Generally, traffic congestion is created by pinch points in the roadway network – primarily major intersections. The engineering study determined lane assignments and signal designs to accommodate traffic volumes. The City of Houston will monitor traffic patterns  after the project is complete and make any modifications to signal operations that might be needed to continue accommodating traffic.
