A proposed Texas Department of Transportation project would widen FM 1463 between I-10 and FM 1093.

What we reported A large-scale widening and extension project to FM 1093 and the Westpark Tollway began in February 2016. FM 1093 will be a two-lane frontage road in each direction on either side of the Westpark Tollway extending 2.3 miles west of the Grand Parkway. The extension consists of four lanes of concrete-paved highway with two lanes in each direction. An overpass will be built above the intersection of Katy-Gaston Road and Spring Green Boulevard.


The latest On FM 1463, a proposed TxDOT project includes significant construction along a 6.7-mile stretch of the road between I-10 and FM 1093. Under the proposed project, FM 1463 would be renovated and widened from two lanes throughout to either four or six lanes in various locations.


What’s next The FM 1093 project is estimated to cost $64 million and is scheduled to be completed by February 2018. The estimated cost for the FM 1463 project is $81 million, and construction is estimated to begin in early 2019.
