Super Bowl is coming and Montrose will get a make over with new signage, median designs and bridge lighting, all part of making the historic and iconic neighborhood shine.
“Montrose is different than any other place in the city of Houston. It deserves an opportunity to build upon that unique character,” said Tony Allender, project manager for mobility and visual enhancement projects at the Montrose Management Distric.
The phase of new signs and revamped esplanades will begin in the next few months, with lighting on the bridges going over U.S. 59 expected to be completed in time for the Super Bowl next year in 2017.
The gray markers will be about nine feet in height, with LED backlights that changes color. The first phase will put up 19 out markers and redo esplanades along Montrose, Yoakum and Lovett Blvd.
The esplanades will have vegetation, trees, some planting and hardscape landscaping. “They’re intended to be very attractive, very distinct. Something that can be managed over the long-term,” he said.
