KEEPING YOU POSTED ON METRO’S LIGHT RAIL CONSTRUCTION


The word is out and the campus is buzzing about the light rail coming to the University of Houston campus. With all the talk comes questions, and UH Parking and Transportation wants to keep its community up to date on the latest news with the South East Light Rail blog.

The blog provides a portal of information for community concerns and construction updates as they progress including what crews are working on and how long to expect the work to last. It will also include briefings from Community Advisory Board meetings and promote local businesses that may be affected while construction is in progress. Links to fun and interesting news releases about METRO and the light rail will provide another outlet to answer questions and keep the UH community in-the-know.

Chris Ramsey, a member of the UH University Services team, will manage the blog and attend the Community Advisory Board meetings. He said feedback expressed at the meetings so far has been positive.

“Everyone seems excited about the South East line and wants to get it done,” Ramsey said. “Once complete, the South East line will further connect UH to the community.’”

Ramsey is also directing videos that will appear on the University Services YouTube account. The first video teaches the UH community to be S.A.F.E., an acronym to teach awareness as construction begins. The UH community will learn to: Stop what you are doing, be Aware of the situation, Figure out the best way forward, Execute your decision while staying S.A.F.E. Future videos are planned for monthly postings that will teach about proper behavior around a construction zone.

Light rail construction is anticipated to be completed in 2014. To view the South East Light Rail blog and safety videos, visit www.uhlightrail.blogspot.com.
