The Houston Parks Board recently began construction on the San Jacinto Bayou Greenway Project. Houston Parks Board has been working in close partnership with the City of Houston, Harris County Precinct Four, Harris County Flood Control District, community groups, and partners to plan a new San Jacinto Greenway.
The 2.6-mile greenway will feature a hike and bike trail, wayfinding signage, benches, trash cans, recycling bins, wildflower plantings, and more. It will eventually connect to the Spring Creek and Cypress Creek trail systems on the west end via Ross Road through the future Precinct Four Edgewater Park. It will also connect to the Kingwood trail system on the east end via Woodland Hills Drive, giving access to hundreds of miles of trail systems on both the east and west ends built by other partners.
Construction is expected to take 12 months, weather permitting. Crews will be operating between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
As a result of the construction activities, please be aware of flagmen and orange traffic cones that will be put in place on site to help with traffic flow through the construction zone. Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times. Residents will have access to driveways at all times, and may experience an increase in noise levels due to trucks and equipment in the area.
