KEEPING YOU POSTED ON METRO’S LIGHT
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
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.
