City Council Says No Motor Vehicle Bridge Contemplated for Equador Street

We understand that there has been discussion and curiosity regarding the possibility of a motor vehicle bridge on Equador Street across White Oak Bayou. We want to provide you with the most up-to-date information and clarify our intentions in this matter.


On Monday, October 2023, the City Council passed Resolution 2023-57, which contains the clear statement: "A motor vehicle bridge is not in consideration for Equador Street over White Oak Bayou, and the city publicly commits to not building such a bridge at said location."


While discussions have previously suggested the idea of a bridge, the Council approved the Resolution to assure residents that a motor vehicle bridge at Equador Street over White Oak Bayou is not being considered by the City.


“Our city staff their whole job is to bring ideas to us,” said Mayor Warren during the October 23 Council meeting. “If they are not good ideas after having discussed them that is fine, but we are better off having discussed them.” With the passing of the resolution the City Council made it clear a bridge at this location is not on the table right now.
