KATY/FORT BEND COUNTY (Covering Katy News) – Waiting at the traffic lights along Cinco Ranch Boulevard at Highway 99, the Lanier Parkway, can be frustrating if the driver in front of you is not planning to turn right. That’s because there is not a dedicated right turn lane on either side of the parkway.
“As another component to the mobility improvements being made to SH 99, the Commissioners Court voted today to approve the work for the management and engineering for right turn lanes on Cinco Ranch Boulevard at SH 99,” wrote Precinct 3 Commissioner Andy Meyers in a social media post.
When complete, these turning lanes will add dedicated right turn lanes on both the eastbound and westbound side of Cinco Ranch Boulevard. See map below.
“Last night, I attended the monthly board meeting of Cinco MUD 12 and I am very happy to report that the MUD agreed to work in partnership with us to fund a large portion of the costs of constructing these turn lanes – up to $600,000,” Meyers wrote.
Cinco MUD 12 services the area near the intersection that includes LaCenterra.
“This is another amazing opportunity for us to work together as part of our great relationship,” Meyers said of MUD 12. “Special thanks to the board directors and attorneys who supported this deal. Work is already underway on the design and we’ll be on an expedited timeline to get these new turn lanes built within a year, Meyers added.
