HOUSTON – All tunnels of the Memorial Park Land Bridge are scheduled to open Tuesday.
Each tunnel is 25 feet tall by 54 feet wide and is well-lit by both natural and overhead lighting, officials said. The tunnels are for one-way, continuous car traffic only (no stopping allowed).
Pedestrian refuge areas are also provided within the tunnels for safety purposes only. Officials said they are not sidewalks and pedestrians are not permitted to walk through the tunnels.
The opening of the tunnels marks a major milestone in Memorial Park’s Land Bridge and Prairie project, which was slated for completion late this year.
