Fort Bend Independent: Plans to improve safety on Murphy Road discussed, 2013-Nov, by Barbara Fulenwider:
When Carleton finished his presentation Councilman Cecil Willis described the plan as “intriguing, interesting, thought provoking and a modernistic approach to what we presently have out there.”
In addition to improving safety and mobility, the plan recommended sidewalks and bike lanes. Opportunities to connect with a METRO Park & Ride were presented. Whether or not all the amenities come to light, it was clear improvements will contribute to healthier economic development in the area.
