Project Name : Waugh Drive/Commonwealth Street Pedestrian & Bicycle Improvements


The project is located in the Montrose area, within the limits of the TIRZ 27/Montrose Redevelopment Authority boundary. The project length is just over 2-miles long. The roadway corridor limits included:

  • Waugh Drive: from Westheimer Road to West Dallas Street

The purpose of this project was to improve bicycle safety and mobility, sidewalks, and pedestrian safety throughout the project corridor with special attention to intersections.

  • Improve Bicycle Safety & Mobility: Mill and overlay existing deteriorated asphalt pavement and re-stripe/reduce the roadway lanes to 10-FT to accommodate wider and safer bike lanes along the project corridor.
