Fort Bend County officials gathered in Precinct 3 on August 31, 2018 for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of Phase 1 of the Cane Island Parkway improvement project. Phase 1 of the project covers the section of Cane Island Parkway between I-10 and FM 1463.

The Parkway consists of two concrete lanes in each direction and is part of the Mobility Project 13306; which also included the construction of a new bridge and channel improvements to reduce flooding. The 4,100 foot-long project provides a new connection from FM 1463 to the overpass at I-10. The total project cost for Phase 1 is $8.3 million with the City of Katy and Ventana Development contributing to the construction costs.
