​​​​​​​KATY – The Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) are working on three major expansion​ projects for SH 99 (Grand Pkwy.). 

The state highway will be widened from a four- to six-line divided highway between I-10 in Katy to US 59 in Sugar Land. Work will be bid for construction in September 2022 and cost $59 million. 

Plans for the widening have been in the works s​i​nce mid-2017. The project was originally expected to cost $118 million. 

After the highway is widened, the project team will build new northbound connectors between the Westpark Tollway and the Grand Pkwy. The $46.5 million project will include one-lane eastbound and westbound connectors and take about 30 months to complete.

TxDOT and the county are working to build additional southbound frontage roads on the west side of the Grand Pkwy. in 2020. The $24 million project will include frontage roads between Cinco Ranch Blvd. and Westheimer Pkwy. and betweent S. Fry Rd. and FM 1093.
