Gateways and Monumentation
In 2009, 12 cities in Eastern Harris County were the recipients of a beautification grant from the Houston-Galveston Area Council and the Economic Alliance – Houston Port Region. This grant was for the construction of a unique gateway that would identify each City as a member of the San Jacinto Historic District.
Cities for which Knudson designed gateways are: LaPorte, Morgan’s Point, South Houston, Jacinto City, Baytown, Deer Park, Shoreacres, Seabrook, Pearland and Galena Park.
Knudson led a project team of engineers and contractors to design and construct 10 gateways. All the gateways were strategically placed so that they could be viewed from a major artery into the cities.
Knudson also served as project manager during the construction phase of each project.
