Sawyer Street Vision Plan

The Sawyer Street corridor, in the First and Sixth Wards in Houston, connects Memorial Drive and Buffalo Bayou Park with IH-10 and the MKT Hike and Bike Trail. The corridor changes character significantly, including both a historic residential district and a quickly changing industrial area.  The area is notable for its historic urban fabric, which is experiencing rapid change and increasing market pressure due to its proximity to Downtown Houston and the increasingly desirable Market Square area.Following on the recommendations of the Washington Avenue Livable Center Plan, Asakura Robinson, along with Traffic Engineers, Inc., developed a new complete streets plan for the corridor. The plan includes design guidelines, separated bicycle lanes and pedestrian refuges and other traffic calming methods.
