Inner West Loop Mobility Study

The study area for the Inner West Loop Mobility Study is bounded on the east by Spur 527 and Bagby Street, on the west by Interstate Highway 610 (West Loop), on the north by Interstate Highway 10 (Katy Freeway), and on the south by U.S. Highway 59 (Southwest Freeway).  The Inner West Loop area has substantially built-out street network system. Acquisition of additional rights-of-way to add capacity to the existing network system is possible; however it will be cost prohibitive due to existing built-out major developments. It is therefore important to evaluate the overall system network to make it efficient to address the current and future needs.  Given the limitation of the current conventional street classification system, the CMP (Phase 1) recommended a multi modal street classification system to utilize within COH. In fact, the multi modal classification system was planned to be integrated into the City’s existing street classification system through these sub-area studies.

The primary purpose is to identify short, medium and long range projects intended to promote better mobility, and to consider and develop a multi modal classification for streets within the study area.  During the course of this task the Consultant will work with City staff to integrate the new mobility study process with a mobility toolbox into the City’s current transportation planning process.
