A note from Commissioner Meyers:
Great things are happening between Fort Bend County and our local MUDs through our outstanding partnerships! This past week, I met with Cinco MUD 12 Board President Dana Cleland and the MUD's legal counsel, Steve Robinson, to work out final details of the joint venture to build additional turn lanes on Cinco Ranch Blvd. at SH 99 / Grand Parkway.
When complete, these projects will add right turn lanes in both the eastbound and westbound lanes of Cinco Ranch Blvd. at SH 99. The MUD has agreed to contribute up to $550,000 toward these improvements, contingent upon the work being accomplished within a calendar year of the agreement. FBC Commissioners Court recently voted to approve the work for the management & engineering for right turn lanes on Cinco Ranch Boulevard at SH 99. When complete, these will add dedicated right turn lanes on both the eastbound and westbound side of Cinco Ranch Boulevard as illustrated in the map below.
This is not the only partnership between us for the community's benefit! Coming up in the very near future, we hope to announce the approval of an agreement between the county and Cinco MUD 12 for the donation of 60 mature live oak trees to the MUD. As part of our ongoing work to provide trees from Bates Allen Park to the community, we're excited to be able to make this happen through our work with the MUD and their engineers at AECOM. More details to come soon!
