The gist

Construction on the Pitts Road Boulevard Expansion Project is expected to begin mid-December and be completed by mid-May 2024, according to city representatives during Katy City Council’s Oct. 23 meeting.

Leaders for the Katy Development Authority were authorized to begin this project with Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County funds after a unanimous vote from council.
