Abandoned and Re-aligned Roads in the Houston Area
Created 08-May-2006, Updated 12-December-2006
As Houston growth as swallowed the old, winding country roads around the city, several road re-alignments have occurred. Many of the old roadways are still visible. But take a look at these abandoned roads while you can, because eventually they'll be lost to development.
|Preston Street Underpass
|| The Preston Street underpass was once along US75 to Harrisburg and Galveston. In favor of a newer, bigger underpass it was abandoned and filled.
|Park Place Blvd &
West Road Bridges
| West Road was aquired and renamed to Goodyear Drive is some distant past. There are two bridges which once connect West Road to Park Place Blvd.
|| At some point in te early '80's Addicks-Fairbanks (Eldridge Parkway) was expanded and realigned leaving behind a ghost alignment.
