For the last several months, Fort Bend County commissioners have worked with local jurisdictions to establish a list of 63 projects from all four precincts identified as critical for providing thoroughfare capacity for the rapidly growing population of Fort Bend County. Partnerships established for many of the projects include city, state, federal and private dollars. These partnerships allow the $218,580,000 bond to provide $388,890,000 in total projects without requiring an increase in the county tax rate.
Citizens are encouraged to visit www.fortbendcountytx.gov/engineering to review the list of projects including descriptions and an interactive map.
Fort Bend County Judge Robert Hebert said, “Our commissioners have done an excellent job in paring down a $500 million wish list to the $218.5 million in projects being submitted to the voters. These projects are essential for maintaining an acceptable level of mobility in our fast-growing county.”
