Harrisburg Boulevard, where Houston transit officials are building a new light rail line, has changed a lot in the past five years. But according to one popular community clock, the time has been 9:29 since Sept. 25, 2009.
At least that was the last time the clock, removed during rail construction and shoved into storage, was operational.
The clock is destined to tick again in Eastwood Park, practically across the street from its former home. Its fate is one of a handful of issues the Metropolitan Transit Authority and other parties are trying to resolve before the Green Line and Purple Line open later this year, extending rail service east and southeast of downtown.
