Transit Improvements Environmental Analysis
RS&H is working with Uptown Houston to help expedite the environmental clearance of two transit projects in Houston, Texas. The goal is to secure categorical exclusions for each of the projects from the Federal Transit Administration by early 2014.
The first project is the Uptown-Bellaire Transit Center, a facility to consolidate local and express buses and park-and-ride facilities on a site adjacent to the I-610 and Southwest Freeway interchange. The second project is to develop a four-mile dedicated-lane bus facility along Post Oak Boulevard. The facility will serve a major commercial and residential district comprised of more than 24,000 residents and more than 100,000 employees.
Both projects involve close coordination with the Houston Uptown District, Houston METRO, Texas Department of Transportation, and the Federal Transit Administration. Once completed, these projects will provide significant transit connectivity and service enhancements to the Uptown District.
