Uptown Houston Improvements

In response to the area businesses’ desire to improve the “sense of place” in Uptown, Gunda Corporation led a comprehensive traffic management and signage improvement program which consisted of design and construction administration for the comprehensive mobility improvements in the Uptown Houston area.

Working with Uptown Houston was an ongoing commitment to assure that access to the area businesses and stores was quick and simple, and that traffic congestion during peak times was minimized. The project included leading the project team that designed and oversaw construction of a system of new traffic signal standards, signage, street lighting, utility relocation, pedestrian flow improvements and decorative arches, which transformed the urban landscape. The new look of Uptown’s traffic system has created a memorable architectural landmark in Houston.
