Construction is nearing completion on Fort Bend County’s new transit center designed to consolidate the transportation department’s operations and house the county’s growing fleet of more than 60 buses.

Located in Rosenberg at the Fort Bend County Fair and Rodeo grounds, the one-story administration facility and transportation complex features 18,600 square feet of office space, 28,400 square feet of maintenance bays, covered bus parking, and a 7,100-square-foot fuel and washing station. The facility also contains a break area, relaxation lounge and kitchen spaces.

Funded primarily through a federal grant, the new $21 million transportation complex is expected to be complete in October 2019. The engineering firm Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc. (LAN) provided planning, engineering and design services for the new transit center. SpawGlass serves as the contractor.
