Regional Transportation Overview
Conveniently located in West Houston, The Energy Corridor is easily accessible from Interstate Highway 10, State Highway 6, Westpark Tollway and the West Sam Houston Tollway (Beltway 8). And, with the connection of the Grand Parkway from US 290 to IH 10 underway, commuters traveling from Northwest Houston will soon enjoy easier access.
Transportation and mobility are vital to the success and growth of The Energy Corridor. To that point, the District is continually working to improve local street access and roadway conditions to ease congestion and increase traffic flow throughout the area. To enhance the quality of life for the community, The Energy Corridor District is also proactively working with local and state officials to provide innovative transportation, mobility, infrastructure and safety programs. As new challenges arise to meet the needs of our growing city, The Energy Corridor District remains committed to playing a key role in planning, developing and promoting smart mobility options for Houstonians who live, work and play within The Energy Corridor.
Pedestrian and Bicycle Friendly
Offering more than 50 miles of scenic trails, The Energy Corridor is ideal for cyclists, joggers and hikers. Many Corridor employees navigate the trails and roadways each day to cycle to work.
The Energy Corridor’s extensive public parks, greenbelts and trails are the perfect backdrop for employees and residents who walk to lunch or who enjoy client meetings in a natural setting. With foot traffic on the rise, the District is initiating numerous sidewalk improvement projects including the widening of walkways along State Highway 6, IH 10, Eldridge and Enclave Parkways, Memorial Drive and Park Row.
