The Fort Bend Grand Parkway Toll Road Authority has scheduled closures of the Jodie Stavinoha Bridge on the Grand Parkway over the Brazos River to complete repair of the bridge and stabilization of the riverbank.
The northbound lanes will be closed through Nov. 21 and the southbound lanes from Nov. 27 through Dec. 22.
The Fort Bend Grand Parkway Toll Road Authority will continue construction on the north bound lanes of the Jodie Stavinoha bridge over the Brazos River located between Riverpark Drive and New Territory Boulevard. The total closure is required to complete the emergency repair that will stabilize the northern bank of the Brazos River and prevent any damage to the Grand Parkway/SH 99 bridge while ensuring the safety of the traveling public. Beginning Oct. 28, the northbound mainlanes between Riverpark Drrive and New Territory Boulevard will be closed continuously until Tuesday, Nov. 21, at 5 a.m. when one lane will reopen. Southbound traffic over the Jodie Stavinhoa Bridge will remain open in one lane only during that time.
Northbound traffic on Grand Parkway/SH 99 may detour by traveling north on the Southwest Freeway, turn left to proceed north on Highway 6, then turn left to proceed west on U.S. Highway 90A and proceed to Grand Parkway (SH 99). Traffic will be able to reenter the SH 99 mainlanes at the northbound entrance ramp from US 90A/ FM 1464.
From Nov. 21-27, both northbound and southbound Grand Parkway/SH 99 traffic is scheduled to remain open in one lane only. On Nov. 27, the southbound mainlanes will be closed continuously until Friday, Dec. 22, at 5 p.m. All dates on the southbound traffic closure are tentative and subject to change.
Southbound traffic on Grand Parkway/SH 99 will exit FM 1464/US 90A, turn left to proceed east on US 90A, then turn right to proceed south on Highway 6. Traffic will be able to access the Southwest Freeway to proceed to their final destination. Local New Territory residents may continue to access New Territory Boulevard and Sandhill Drive using the SH 99 frontage roads and auxiliary lane.
