Hurricane Evacuation Routes

The Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority cooperates and is actively involved with all of the other transportation agencies in the region to assist in the safe evacuation of residents should the need arise. 

If the Fort Bend County Judge determines that our region is in imminent danger from a hurricane or other natural disaster he may declare an emergency.   If an emergency is declared for Fort Bend County, Harris County, Galveston County or Brazoria County and residents of low lying areas are urged to evacuate, all tolls on toll roads operated by the Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority will be waived.  Tolls may be waived for some period following a natural disaster as well.  Tolling would resume when the Judge has determined that the conditions in the region have returned to near normal. 

In addition to waiving the tolls during an evacuation the Authority, in cooperation with HCTRA and TxDOT may determine that certain segments of some of the tollways will be used as evacuation lanes.  This would mean all lanes of the road would be used to move traffic in a single direction.
