HOUSTON -As the City of Houston continues the transition to recovery efforts following Hurricane Harvey, city operations are returning to normal and an increase in traffic is expected tomorrow (Tuesday, September 5).    

Houston motorists are reminded the following intersections remain impassable due to high water:

  • Houston Avenue at Memorial Drive 
  • Allen Parkway at  Montrose and Shepherd
  • Memorial at Waugh Drive  

Anyone who believes his or her commute might be impacted is strongly encouraged to take advantage of bus and light rail options offered by the Houston Metropolitan Transit Authority (METRO) and experience the efficiency of the City of Houston's mass transit services.  

City of Houston Public Works and Engineering (PWE) crews are also working tirelessly to restore traffic signals in downtown Houston and other intersections impacted by this historic rain event.  

METRO is currently operating most of its major routes.  For information on routes and times available, visit or call 713-635-4000
