City of Houston launches Slow Streets project for more access to walking and biking
Updated: Jun 18, 2020
The City of Houston recently launched the Slow Streets project encouraging residents of Eastwood to spend more time outdoors.
"With more Houstonians staying at home, walking and biking have increased substantially," stated a press release on the City of Houston website.
To support this initiative, the City of Houston started the pilot project within the Eastwood neighborhood to provide more space for key activities by limiting certain streets to local traffic only.
"Vehicles traveling to local homes and businesses may continue to access these streets, along with all emergency vehicles. No parking spaces have been removed."
The Eastwood Pilot Project will last for three months until Labor Day. City staff has plans to continue meeting with community members to gather feedback on this initiative.
