Road Improvements Coming Soon! Grand Parkway and Westpark Tollway

Getting to work will soon get easier for commuters using the Grand Parkway entrances, as a mobility project to build direct connectors from east- and westbound Westpark Tollway to northbound Grand Parkway is moving forward – according to a recent article by Community Impact.

In a 4-0 vote, the Fort Bend County Commissioners approved a joint agreement to construct these direct connectors at the Nov. 26 court meeting. Judge K.P. George was absent. These connectors are needed “to alleviate traffic congestion and related public safety concerns,” according to the agreement document. The joint agreement is between Fort Bend County, Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority, Fort Bend Grand Parkway Toll Road Authority and Fort Bend County Assistance Districts Nos. 1 and 9.

Under this agreement, about $10.3 million of sales tax revenue from the county assistance districts and Fort Bend County Emergency Services District No. 100—which entered into an agreement with Fort Bend County in 2011 to help fund road improvements to improve response times—will be contributed toward the total project cost of $46.5 million, per the agreement document.

The toll road authorities will contribute the remaining $36.2 million for the project and oversee its design and construction, per the agreement document. Design plans for the direct connectors include constructing one lane with shoulders, Mike Stone of Mike Stone Associates Inc. and of the FBCTRA said in an email in October. Construction is expected to begin in 2020 and will last about 30 months.
