The Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (METRO) continues to advance work on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the US 90A/Southwest Rail Corridor, which was initiated in January 2011. The proposed US 90A/Southwest Rail Corridor is approximately nine miles of new construction starting at Missouri City to the Fannin South Rail Station, merging with the existing METRORail Red Line up to Wheeler Station. The proposed line would directly serve Reliant Park, the Texas Medical Center, Rice University, the Houston Zoo, Hermann Park, and the Museum District. METRO hosted four open-house public meetings in February 2011 to identify alternatives and transportation issues in the corridor. This was part of the federal "scoping process".
Both alternative routes proposed travel through Westbury. Here are the meetings.
