The improvements to EaDo keep coming! 

EaDo is amazing already, but plenty of groups are working hard to make it even better. TIRZ 15, for example, supports businesses, residents, and visitors in East Downtown with infrastructure projects that improve safety, accessibility, and mobility. It currently has two projects nearing completion. 


The Walker Street Rehabilitation will integrate bicycle and vehicular traffic signals at Emancipation Avenue, as well as improve intersections, asphalt resurfacing, and new ADA ramps along a three-block stretch south of Shell Energy Stadium. 


The Columbia Tap Trail upgrades courtesy of TIRZ 15 are also getting their finishing touches. You’ll soon be able to enjoy fitness equipment, a bicycle fix-it station, new benches, a water fountain, and pedestrian-friendly lighting between St. Charles Street and Ennis Street. 


For more details, check out the TIRZ 15 Project Storymap for a walkthrough of current construction, active projects, and completed improvements in the zone. It’s updated weekly, so check back for updates. You can also contact the zone administrator at admin@edratirz15.org.


On a similar note, Friends of Columbia Tap Trail is hosting its third workshop for the Columbia Tap Trail Action Plan & Toolkit project in partnership with the UH Community Design Resource Center. RSVP for the Nov. 15 discussion on project prioritization and budgeting here. 


Are you looking to meet people who share your passion for community? Rotary Houston Skyline is hosting its annual fundraiser, the EaDo Rodeo Skyline Super Saturday, at Brass Tacks on Nov. 4.
