Katy City Council approved bond funds for a realignment project at Pitts Road and Morton Road at its Jan. 10 meeting. The project is one of four initiatives being funded by the release of Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County bond funds, which total $23 million.

This project will align the new Pitts Road in Cane Island with the existing Pitts Road north of Morton Road. The scope of work will include a new concrete boulevard, a traffic signal and a storm sewer system.

On Jan. 7, the Katy Development Authority approved the sale of the bonds, which will take place in February. After the bonds are sold, the KDA will begin authorizing the projects and the design phase will begin. The realignment project is expected to begin in January 2023 and is estimated to cost $2,346,310.
