East End Light Rail

Light-Rail-Map-1Construction of the East End light rail continues. The line is expected to be operational from Altic Street, connecting to the Southeast line and downtown Houston in Fall, 2014. Testing of the track will commence in spring, with a shuttle wagon checking the signals, clearances, and other safety measures. Windscreens designed by local artists are installed at the station platforms at York, Lockwood, and Altic and Cesar Chavez streets, as well as native landscape plants.
