The Energy Corridor District is working on about $40MM worth of transportation mobility projects that are either in the works or pipeline. The $15MM Park Row road completion is currently underway, which will open up that area west of ConocoPhillips to development, which is already planned.

As reported by $25Million in transportation projects for Houston‘s Energy Corridor have been approved. 

“Improving transportation and mobility in The Energy Corridor is one of our prime missions,” explains John Nunez, Transportation Manager for The Energy Corridor District. “These five projects will bring significant upgrades to several busy Energy Corridor roadways and intersections. The end result will be safer, more efficient ways to travel for both drivers and pedestrians.”
