The looking for that contractor to also identify physical and non-physical improvements to enhance the active transportation level of service in the study area.

Scope of Work

Buffalo Bayou Partnership led an initiative with several local stakeholders to identify key links in the area to improve mobility. Also, this project will evaluate those connections in a more in-depth manner based on the existing conditions analysis and a public involvement process supporting final recommendations. Consequently, the pre-identified connections include three sections for development: Gregg/Velasco, 5th Ward TOD and Japhet Creek, and North Side Treatment Plant East Trail connection.

The contractor is to collect any data necessary to evaluate existing conditions in the development project study area and identify barriers located within and adjacent to it. Please note, some data may be available from the H-GAC Data Analytics department and that the Contractor will coordinate with H-GAC to make use of existing H-GAC data prior to using outside sources. The existing conditions assessment will include, but not be limited to:

  • Existing characteristics of the project area including demographics profile, land use, Vulnerable
    Population Index using H-GAC’s equity tool, daytime population component, public health data,
    recreational and other behavior patterns if available.
