To ease traffic congestion, one Houston-area county is constructing a new building to house its transportation-related activities.

Fort Bend County broke ground Aug. 29 on a $21 million transit center, according to a press release from Houston-based Lockwood Andrews & Newnam Inc., or LAN, which provided the planning, engineering and design services for the project.

The new facility will allow the county to maintain and expand its current public bus fleet of 60 as well as consolidate administration, operations, dispatch, fueling and maintenance from four locations into one. The consolidation is expected to save Fort Bend County time and money, per the release.
