|Fort Bend Parkway Driving Tour, September 1, 2004|

The first section of the Fort Bend Parkway opened on August 30, 2004. Like the Westpark Tollway, it is very narrow (four lanes total), but it has a much wider right-of-way so it can be expanded if needed in the future, and frontage roads can be added.
The Westpark Tollway's narrow right-of-way made some interesting structures necessary. However, the Fort Bend Parkway is very plain-jane due to the availability of plenty of right-of-way. It is just a road through mostly undeveloped land, and could qualify as boring.
