Commissioner Meyers proposed the County's first successful mobility bond proposal in 1999. Since then, he has successfully partnered with Commissioners Court members on more than $1 billion in voter-approved funding for mobility improvements, allowing the County to keep pace with its explosive growth. He also convinced Harris County to extend its portion of the Westpark Tollway an additional 4.5 miles. Originally designed to end at Highway 6, Meyers negotiated an extension to the Fort Bend County line and expanded it 15 miles to the Katy-Fulshear area.
Commissioner Meyers secured $180 million from TxDOT, the Fort Bend Toll Road Authority, and a Fort Bend County Assistance District to widen FM 1093 from the Grand Parkway to Fulshear, solving traffic congestion and completing the largest single mobility project in the county years ahead of schedule.
He initiated mobility improvements to Sugar Land's Dulles Avenue by funding the projects through the 2000 and 2007 County Mobility Bond Programs.
He worked across party lines with State Legislators to pass a bill allowing county and city partnerships to generate revenue that funds the construction and maintenance of roads.
