These maps show projected job and population growth in the one-mile corridor around possible alignments of the University rail line west of Main Street. Each map is divided into quarter mile cells that are color coded according to the number of jobs or residences in that cell. The yellow line is a buffer area that includes everything one mile from the rail alignment. The total number of new jobs or new residents in a zone are shown above each map. These projections were created by the Houston-Galveston Area Council assuming current trends and policies, so our choices on transportation infrastructure and land use can alter these predictions.
