South 75th Bridge Over Brays Bayou Opens to Traffic

South 75th Bridge Over Brays Bayou Opens to Traffic

The Harris County Flood Control District opens South 75th Street Bridge over Brays Bayou to commuters and pedestrians. The approximately $7.7 million South 75th Street Bridge construction project demolished and replaced the previous bridge with a higher, longer, and wider bridge. The new bridge and accompanying channel conveyance improvements will increase the capacity of the channel, allowing for more stormwater to flow through Brays Bayou. The new bridge has four 11-foot lanes and an expanded 10-foot sidewalk. While the new bridge is now open to commuters, additional paving and channel construction on the bridge will continue through Spring 2022.
