TxDOT is proposing to widen FM 359 from FM 1093 to Mason Road, a distance of approximately 9.5 miles in Fort Bend County, Texas, in an effort to improve traffic flow and increase mobility within the project area. 

Current Conditions

FM 359 is a two-lane undivided road from FM 1093 to Mason Road.

Project Background

  • FM 359 serves as one of the main north-south major collectors between Brookshire, Fulshear and Richmond west of Houston
  • This area of Fort Bend County is planned for continued residential and commercial development; with the forecasted increase in development, the current two-lane road will not be able to accommodate the required capacity associated with the increase in traffic
  • There are congestion and safety concerns along the corridor

Proposed Improvements

Proposed improvements include:

  • Widen from two to four lanes, divided with a raised median 
  • Provide right- and left-turn lanes at major intersections 
  • Re-align several curves along the corridor

Estimated construction cost is $80 million.

Next Steps

  • Conduct environmental analysis
  • Develop proposed build alternative
  • Complete Environmental Assessment document
  • Begin right of way acquisition
  • Finalize design
