Local Leaders Okay Fort Bend Mobility Bond Package

The Fort Bend Economic Development Council and all three local chambers have given their stamp of approval on a $218 million mobility bond package on the Nov. 7 ballot. 

The package, which will not bring any new taxes, supports residential and business growth, business recruitment opportunities, increased workforce availability and enhanced quality of life, says EDC President and CEO Jeff Wiley.

Sixty-three mobility projects are included in the package, many of which will benefit residents of Johnson Development communities: 

  • The construction of Twinwood Ranch Road, providing new north/south mobility from the Brazos at FM 1489 to I-10
  • Adding southbound frontage roads along the Grand Parkway between Cinco Ranch Boulevard and Westheimer Parkway and Fry Road and FM 1093
  • Converting FM 521 to a four-lane boulevard from FM 2234 to the Brazoria County line
  • Extending Owens Road from US 90A to FM 1464 in Sugar Land, allowing for enhanced mobility and development of land tracts west of the Sugar Land Regional Airport
  • Multiple intersection enhancements in and around Sienna Parkway

Read more about the proposed projects and then get out and make your voice heard through early voting, going on now, or on Election Day Nov. 7.
