Fort Bend County officials gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony on June 25, 2018, to celebrate the completion of a 3100-foot improvement to Willie Melton Boulevard between Ben Williams Drive and FM 2919 in Fort Bend County’s Precinct 1.
The paving project repaired the two-lane concrete boulevard, extending the life of the existing road and eliminating hazards associated with the previously crumbling pavement. The project, made possible through 2013 Mobility Bond 13115, was completed on April 20, 2018 for a total cost of $1,055,300, under the original projected cost of $1,400,000.
Judge Bob Hebert said, “This project provided a much needed improvement to Willie Melton Street. It is a very successful county project in partnership with the City of Kendleton, ably spearheaded by Precinct 1 Commissioner Vincent Morales.”
