METRO Pedestrian Bridge Paves Way to Safer Commutes


Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (Houston METRO) board members and executive leadership gathered with community stakeholders and elected officials recently to celebrate the unveiling of the agency’s new Post Oak Road Pedestrian Bridge.

The 14-foot-wide, 600-foot-long steel truss bridge spans more than 17 lanes of the Katy Freeway and facilitates travel to and from METRO’s Northwest Transit Center. It also provides a link to destinations including Memorial Park and surrounding neighborhoods.

METRO Board Chair Sanjay Ramabhadran expressed his excitement for the completion of the project, adding that its construction is a testament to METRO’s commitment to enhancing mobility and improving the quality of life for residents across the region.

“Construction on this project began in February 2022, and anticipation has been building ever since,” he said. “Personally, I’ve visited this site several times during construction and throughout the last month. It’s incredibly satisfying to witness people already benefiting from this bridge to reach their destinations.”
