HOUSTON (Houston Chronicle) – A recently opened bridge has provided a new route into the Texas Medical Center, as well as direct access to Hermann Park, the Houston Zoo and Rice University.
Named after the Texas Medical Center Corp.’s CEO, the Richard E. Wainerdi Bridge allows vehicles to drive directly across Brays Bayou from the South Loop.
The $9 million bridge was funded by Harris County, the City of Houston, The Woodlands, Texas Medical Center institutions and donors.
