Fort Bend CountyToll Road Extension Approved by Harris County

Harris County Commissioners' Court is expected to approve today the schematics for an approximate five-mile extension of the proposed Ford Bend Parkway Toll Road project. While the primary Ft. Bend Parkway Toll Road corridor will be constructed by the Ft. Bend County Toll Road Authority, the extension will be built by the Harris County Toll Road Authority and will provide a connection from the Ft. Bend facility at Beltway 8 to US Hwy. 90A, and to the existing Post Oak spur at West Bellfort (near the southwest corner of the 610 Loop).

The extension project will be built in two phases, with Phase I project limits described as Beltway 8/Hillcroft Avenue and US Hwy. 90A/Chimney Rock Drive and South Post Oak Road/West Bellfort Street.

The proposed extension will be a four-lane limited access Tollway.
