Where the Streets Have New Names: 20 Houston Streets That Change Names
Ella Boulevard/Wheatley Street
Ella makes its change at Pinemont as it heads north. If you want to see a rather dramatic change of scenery, take the drive and go from the urban neighborhood Candlelight to the remarkably rural Acres Homes.
34th Street/Kempwood Drive
One of numerous street name changes involving Hempstead Highway, 34th passes through Garden Oaks and Oak Forest before changing to Kempwood east of the very diverse Spring Branch area.
43rd Street/Clay Road
One of the longest streets in Houston, after Hempstead Highway when it becomes Clay Road, it remains under that name all the way to Katy.
Wirt Road/Chimney Rock
Interstate 10 offers another dividing line for a number of street names, and this is one example. Chimney Rock continues through the Galleria area and ultimately merges onto the Fort Bend Parkway.
Fountain View Drive/Renwick Drive
Fountain View begins as a tiny side street off Woodway but becomes a busy road through the Galleria area before returning to its humble beginning as it morphs into Renwick south of U.S. 59.
