On August 3, 2018, Fort Bend County officials gathered in north Fort Bend County to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Gaston Road improvement project. Segment 1 of the project covers the section of Gaston Road between Greenbusch Road and Katy Flewellen Road in Precinct 3.

Planned renovations include replacing the existing 2-lane asphalt roadway with a divided four-lane concrete boulevard and upgrading the drainage along the boulevard from open-ditch to an underground storm drainage system. The 9,130 foot-long Mobility Project will improve mobility and decrease congestion in an area undergoing rapid development. Improvements are scheduled to be completed by August 21, 2019 at an estimated cost of $9.1 million.

Judge Bob Hebert said, “This 1.7 mile project will significantly increase mobility capacity in this highly developed area between Katy and FM 1093.”
