Solving Houston's Traffic Problems

Posted March 27, 2014

When it comes to urban sprawl, Houston has a bit of a lock; the city's outskirts are constantly spreading, mutating, and shifting as new construction consumes surrounding land.

City officials and residents are struggling with increasing snarls, poor road conditions, and confusing streets that aren't keeping pace with demand. 

While Houston concrete contractors and other professionals stand at the ready to help the city modernize its streets, Houston is also looking at public transit options to reduce dependency on cars. As a consequence of poor urban planning, the city is having to take painstaking retrofitting steps to lay out the public transit system it needs and deserves, but along the way, hopefully it will learn lessons it can apply to future expansion and growth initiatives.
