Living at Lakes at Bella Terra, you get to enjoy all that Fort Bend County has to offer. With wide open spaces and incredible home values of the suburbs and convenient proximity to Houston, you get the best of both worlds. However, you have probably experienced a little of the tension of the flourishing community when it comes to the increased traffic on your commute, especially on FM 1093.
A recent news article by Jeff Forward in the Community Impact Newspaper gives some valuable updates as well as some of the history behind the project you deal with on a regular basis. Believe it or not, FM 1093 is over 100 years old. Clearly back then, the builders were not creating a road to meet the needs of a blooming suburb a century in the future.
In the article, Andy Meyers, Fort Bend County Precinct 3 commissioner discussed his early concerns about the road. He states,
"Ten years ago, I recognized FM 1093 was going to be a very congested road; it was only two lanes. The county was approving housing developments in the area, and with a lot of houses and a lot of cars, we knew traffic would be an issue."
The response to the issue has been the expansion of the Westpark Tollway through Fort Bend County in two phases. The first phase is expected to continue in 2018. But while the construction might be an annoyance for now, once the road is completed, Fort Bend County (which is already the fifth fastest growing county in the country) will continue to expand with new businesses, enterprises, and communities like the one we love here at the Lakes of Bella Terra.
