Harris County to invest $30M in Third Ward street upgrades near UH, TSU

Finally

County Commissioner Rodney Ellis, who represents Precinct 1, is financing the upgrades, which target seven streets around the campuses, with a focus on Cleburne Street from Texas 288 to TSU and Cullen Boulevard from Interstate 45 to North McGregor Boulevard. Some residents of the area have long called for infrastructure and road upgrades in what they say is a neglected neighborhood.


Other streets targeted for improvement include: Blodgett from Scott to Ennis, Attucks from Cleburne to Wheeler, Wheeler from Cullen to Scott, Elgin from Scott to I-45 and Holman from Scott to Cullen.

Much needed but will be a mess while they upgrade.

I’m glad they are including internships in these programs.

Interesting. Calhoun wasn’t one of the streets originally listed for renovation. I wonder if they are still going to fix Cullen and Holman.

I assume those are next. Not sure if you’d want all the streets under construction at the same time.
