Texas Medical Center Transportation Study

Jeffrey Weatherford, P.E., PTOE, Deputy Director

The Texas Medical Center (TMC) Transportation Study will strategize alternative mobility solutions and system improvements in an area of substantial traffic growth. The study will consist of collecting and assessing data from major intersections, parking facilities, transit lines, and current/ proposed developments for the purpose of addressing long-term mobility needs. Funding for the study is furnished from an earmarked FTA grant, with TMC and the City of Houston providing the local match. The area in and around TMC includes numerous interests whose involvement in the study process is critical. These interests will be addressed in a series of Steering Committee meetings and Stakeholder meetings, as well as two Public meetings. While overall improvements will be considered for a general area surrounding TMC, the majority of analysis will focus on TMC and its immediate surroundings.

The project's general study area is bound by Alabama St/ W. Alabama St (north), Scott St (east), Sam Houston Tollway (south), and Buffalo Speedway (west). Within the general study area is a primary study area, bounded by Hermann Dr/ Sunset Blvd/ Rice Blvd (north), Almeda Rd (east), Holly Hall St (south), and Greenbriar St (west).
