Safe Streets, Safe Communities; Walking and Biking Infrastructure in Gulfton
In the summer and fall of 2018, an audit on the streets, bikeways and sidewalks of Houston's Gulfton neighborhood was conducted by the Kinder Institute. Researchers found that 36 percent of 486 street segments in the area had no sidewalks, and 41 percent of existing sidewalks had some kind of obstruction, such as gaps, parked cars and tree or shrub overgrowth.

This study further builds on previous research by the institute about how to improve safety for all road users, including pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and public transportation users, specifically in Houston's Gulfton neighborhood.
