Hurray for Harrisburg!

Check out this time lapse of construction on the East End Line. The intersection of Harrisburg and Lockwood was taken apart like a giant jigsaw puzzle, then put back together - all in 60 hours. The intersection needed to be changed to accommodate our future light-rail trains.
The East End Line, or Green Line, will be about four miles long, and will run along Harrisburg from the Magnolia Transit Center in a historic district to downtown entertainment and business destinations. The last portion will be shared with the Southeast Line, or Purple Line.
Riders will be able to transfer and travel to the University of Houston's main campus and Palm Center, or transfer to our existing Red Line on Main Street. Click here to see a map of the East End Line.
