A mobile reader sends some fresh shots of not-quite-green-yet redone greenway along Brays Bayou, looking west from Buffalo Spdway. along S. Braeswood Blvd. The Harris CountyÂ flood control folks have been widening this section of theÂ channelized stream this fallÂ as they work their way through the Project Brays checklist; the stretch seen above and belowÂ is aboutÂ 2 milesÂ downstream of some of thoseÂ more submersion-proneÂ areas of Meyerland near theÂ Brays crossing underÂ 610.
