Long-suffering Upper Kirby Westheimers are getting their lanes and sidewalk back (though with treacherous holes where the roots of the yet-to-be-planted trees are supposed to go); - not to mention new bus shelters in the spiffy red-gray Upper Kirby District look. And then there are a few new places, or old ones that are more accessible again: Like the French Bakery.
Reward for two years or so of impaired road and sidewalk functionality if any: Eye-pleasing designer bus stops in Upper Kirby signage that provide limited protection against the elements. Hopefully the Metro busses on the 82 Westheimer run will manage to stick to the 10-minute or less intervals, and update their current-location status in real time for smart phone users, so the shelters won't be in need much, especially during the hot season.
