KATY (Covering Katy News) – The intersection of FM 1093 at Spring Green/FM 723 is closed and will remain so through Sunday morning according to Fort Bend County Precinct 3 Commissioner Andy Meyers.
The closure is necessary to replace and pour the concrete for lanes under the new overpass.
“Starting Sunday afternoon, there will be a new, smooth and level stretch of road that will greatly alleviate the slowdowns drivers have recently experienced due to the rough concrete,” Meyers said in a statement.
“FM 1093 remains open, so if you are traveling on these roads, you can turn right on to FM 1093 and make U-turns to go around the closure,” Meyers said.
The Westpark Tollway extension project is designed to relieve congestion and enhance safety for one of the fastest growing areas in Fort Bend County. The area has seen thousands of homes constructed and numerous commercial developments added during the past decade.
Phase 1 of the FM 1093 frontage road and Westpark Tollway extension project will continue through the end of 2017.
