Houston METRO Breaks Ground for Light Rail Overpass

Houston’s Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (METRO) broke ground March 14 for the Harrisburg Overpass, the last component of the new Green (East End) METRORail light rail line scheduled to open this spring. The half-mile overpass is shown in this artist’s rendering. METRO President and Chief Executive Officer Thomas Lambert said the bridge will serve as the perfect connector for East End residents. “This is going to tie them into a transportation network that gives them more travel choices to go to more places, more jobs, more opportunities, more entertainment,” he noted.
