Over the Bayou & through Downtown on I-45 South

Interstate I-45 and Buffalo Bayou run through the westside of Downtown Houston.

Houston-Downtown-westside-I45-BuffaloBayou-b.t.ct885x670The “Buffalo Bayou Torches” on I-45 south are 30-foot-tall stainless steel torches that mark the edges of the Bayou as Interstate 45 crosses the waterway. The Bayou runs through the heart of Houston and is home for the Buffalo Bayou Promenade.

The Buffalo Bayou Promenade Park designed by SWA Group for the Buffalo Bayou Partnership solves flooding problems, improves ecological structure and function, and provides Houstonians with access to the urban waterfront.
