To relieve congestion along Grand Parkway in Katy, the Texas Department of Transportation is proposing additional main lanes in both directions from I-10 to Westpark Tollway/FM 1093. The project, which spans approximately 7 miles north to south, would take the connector from a four- to six-lane divided highway.
TxDOT will hold an open house for the public to view and give feedback on the project Oct. 24 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Cinco Ranch High School, 23440 Cinco Ranch Blvd., Katy. Staff will be available to answer questions, according to TxDOT.
Multiple ramp modifications are also planned for the project.
"The project may also require [right of way] for detention ponds; however, these locations have not yet been identified," the agency said in an announcement. "No displacements associated with the proposed project are anticipated."
Detailed designs of the proposed work can be found on TxDOT's website.
The project is proposed for Grand Parkway Segment D, which is managed by TxDOT and the Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority.
Separate from TxDOT's plans, as part of the proposed 2017 Fort Bend County mobility bond, Grand Parkway would also receive new frontage roads between Cinco Ranch Bouelvard and Westheimer Parkway, and between FM 1093 to just south of Fry Road.
