These are the 12 most dangerous intersections in Houston

There are about 7 crashes each day involving cars and pedestrians in Houston, according to LINK's research conducted from 2013-2017.

HOUSTON — Hundreds of people are injured or killed in auto-pedestrian accidents each year in Houston, according to a study conducted by LINKHouston.

As part of the Safer Streets Initiative, transportation experts are studying things like crash trends, traffic counts, and crosswalk conditions at 12 intersections.

The City is working with the Federal Highway Administration, BikeHouston, and LINKHouston on the project.

LINKHouston says between 2013 and 2017, more than 12,000 people were injured or killed in auto-ped crashes.

Below are the most dangerous intersections in Houston, according to LINKHouston:  

  • Long Point & Gessner
  • Fondren & West Bellfort
  • Bissonnet & Wilcrest
  • Shepherd & Allen Pkwy & Kirby
  • Taylor & Spring & MKT Trail
  • Hawthorne & Spur 527 & Holman
  • Fannin & Pierce
  • Ranchester & Bellaire
  • West & Airline
  • Bellaire & S Gessner
  • 11th & Nicholson
  • Patterson & Washington

The team of transportation experts audited the intersections in two groups of six. 

The first audit took place last fall. They completed the second audit last week.

The recommendations for the first six intersections will be presented to the City Council’s Transportation, Technology and Infrastructure Committee on Thursday.
