dc.description.abstract Efforts to improve street safety in the Houston region are tied to residents’ ability to access socioeconomic opportunities using different travel modes. Gulfton has the potential to be a more walkable neighborhood because various community resources, commercial activities, schools and residential units are often within walking or biking distance. However, 149 people were either killed or injured while walking between 2010 – 2017 according to TxDOT. This report provides insights into concerns about the availability and conditions of biking and walking facilities and infrastructure in the neighborhood. Several neighborhood walks were organized so that community leaders and citizen volunteers can participate in assessing availability and conditions of existing sidewalks, bikeways and other street elements such as street lighting and building conditions. The project aims to build an inventory of sidewalks, intersections and bikeways in different neighborhoods in Houston.
