After years of planning, work on an important sidewalk project in the region by a partnership involving Port Houston, Harris County, Jacinto City and Galena Park is about to begin. The signed local agreement from the county was received recently, paving the way.
The project involves building a sidewalk that connects Jacinto City to Galena Park to help schoolchildren get to and from school safely.
Those cities identified a need for an avenue to allow people to walk through Port Houston property that is used for dredge disposal, Port Houston Executive Director Roger Guenther noted.
“We appreciate the partnership with our local officials to move this forward,” Guenther said.
This project also illustrates well the partnerships goal in Port Houston’s strategic plan and our connections to community strategy in our master plan.
