Fort Bend County-Its been an exciting week in Fort Bend County. First, area officials attended the “Topping Out” of the Fort Bend County Justice Center along with the General Contractor, JE Dunn. The event was held to celebrate the completion of the structure and a Live Oak Tree was hoisted to the top of the building. Although, their remains a great deal of work to be done to complete the new Justice Center, the topping-out represented the safe and successful attainment of the highest point. County Judge Bob Hebert commented, “It made for an exciting day in Fort Bend County. It was nice to see so many area officials attend this significant event. I am proud to of been a part of it and look forward to the grand opening in 2011.”
In addition to the topping out of the Justice Center, two significant road projects were started this week to include Katy Gaston and Katy Flewellen. Work began on Katy Gaston Road on Monday where the road will be reconstructed to four lanes from Cinco Ranch Blvd to FM 1093. Katy Flewellen will be expanded to four lanes with curb & gutter and storm sewer from Pin Oak Road to Katy Gaston Road. The construction should complete in 12-18 Months. This area is one of high growth and both of these expansions are needed to provide additional capacity for the high demand of traffic in the area.
