Design work is being finalized and a work order could be issued by the end of the summer to bring a set of recommended safety improvements to Hillcroft Avenue from Bellaire Boulevard to Westward Street.
Recommended improvements include traffic calming, landscaping, bus stop relocation and updates, protected bike lanes, wider sidewalks and updated lighting. A new traffic signal at Dashwood Drive is also planned, along with updated pedestrian crossings and a plaza at the Westward/High Star Drive intersection.
