Uptown Houston Mobility Planning
Since 1978, Walter P Moore continues to be involved in the mobility planning for Uptown Houston. Located along the city’s West Loop (IH 610), Uptown Houston is Houston’s second-largest business district after the Downtown CBD. The area is home to office towers, restaurants, and a dynamic retail environment that includes the famed Galleria complex. Over 220,000 people work or shop in Uptown Houston every day, primarily using personal vehicles on a network of public streets and private parking facilities. We worked with Uptown to assure that access to the area’s businesses and stores is simple and rapid and that traffic congestion during peak times is minimized. Many of our recommendations from 20 years ago to the $11 million streetscape program are still being implemented today. Our strong relationship with the Uptown Houston District will continue to make this area attractive for many years to come.
