Mission Statement: Plan and provide early developmental support of major transportation initiatives for the Greater West Houston region.
The West Houston Association has taken great pride in efforts to improve mobility in the Greater West Houston region. Regional mobility has always been critical in the WHA. The expansion of I-10 was part of our founding initiatives. Over the years, the WHA has been involved with the I-10 expansion in 2001, the extension of Westpark Tollway in 2005, Grand Parkway construction, and the expansion of 290. More recently, WHA has been involved in MetroNext’s Plan.

We have just published our West Houston 2060 Plan and in it we tackle some of the challenges and opportunities the region may face when reaching the year 2060. Below is the committee’s event board which gives an overview of the plan section, but click the title above to view the entire committee section and for a complete version of the 2060 plan.
Here is more on our efforts in Regional Mobility:
The Association joins the Greater West Houston “Urban Core” management districts, the City of Houston and other area agencies in a study to improve long range transportation in and to the urban core of our region. The study is being done with the HGAC. Details at this link.
GREATER WEST HOUSTON’S CURRENT AND FUTURE TRANSPORTATION NETWORK
The West Houston Association advocates aggressively for first class highways, thoroughfares and transit. The result: one of the nation’s most accessible growth communities.
The transportation network serving Greater West Houston stands above that of other like regions in Houston and elsewhere in the United States in providing mobility and access, the critical components of a region’s economy. Few similar region’s can match the number and quality of these facilities:
US 290/Northwest Freeway — “Greater West Houston’s Next Great Transportation Corridor”is currently being expanded with over $700 million in contracts or funding approved. And is the subject of a major MOU between TxDOT and Harris County which will greatly accelerate completion of this facility in the near term. This major transportation corridor serves the rapidly growing northwest of Greater West Houston master planned communities and major activity centers. (Click on the shield for more information)
