Trip Building Process

On February 18, 2018 Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority (FBCTRA) will implement a trip building process for toll tag transactions to reduce operational costs. A “trip” is defined as two (2) or more valid AVI (tag) transactions on a single roadway, in a single direction, within a maximum 4-hour time limit. For example, if you traveled the entire southbound length of Grand Parkway, currently you would see seven (7) $0.35 transactions on your toll tag statement. The trip building process would combine those seven (7) valid tag transactions into a single transaction showing as one (1) $2.45 transaction (7 x $0.35 = $2.45) on your toll tag statement. There is no additional cost or surcharge to the customer, just a new way to view the transactions on your toll tag statement.

FBCTRA will host a website WWW.MYFBCTRA.COM where you can view the individual transactions within each trip shown on your toll tag statement. Below is an example of the trip you will see on your statement – note that it will state ‘Trip End’ on the transaction if it is a trip (highlighted in below HCTRA example).

You will use data found on your toll tag statement to login to WWW.MYFBCTRA.COM to view the individual transactions in the trip.

Once logged in, you may view the last 90 days of transactions (trips and individuals) and even export to excel for easy viewing.

Fort Bend Grand Parkway Toll Road Authority (FBGPTRA) will continue construction on the north bound lanes of the Jodie Stavinoha bridge over the Brazos River located between Riverpark Dr. and New Territory Blvd.  The total closure is required to complete the emergency repair that will stabilize the northern bank of the Brazos River and prevent any damage to the Grand Parkway/SH 99 bridge while ensuring the safety of the traveling public.

Northbound traffic on Grand Parkway/SH 99 may detour by traveling north on IH 69/US 59, turn left to proceed north on SH 6, then turn left to proceed west on US 90A and proceed to Grand Parkway (SH 99).  Traffic will be able to reenter the SH 99 mainlanes at the northbound entrance ramp from US 90A/ FM 1464.

Between November 21 and November 27, both northbound and southbound Grand Parkway/SH 99 traffic is scheduled to remain open in one lane only. On November 27th the southbound mainlanes will be closed continuously until Friday, December 22 at 5:00 pm. All dates on the southbound traffic closure are tentative and subject to change at this time.

Southbound traffic on Grand Parkway/SH 99 will exit FM 1464/US 90A, turn left to proceed east on US 90A, then turn right to proceed south on SH 6. Traffic will be able to access IH 69/US 59 to proceed to their final destination.

We advise the traveling public to consider alternative routes during the closure times listed above.  Our goal is to minimize traffic delays while ensuring the safety of the traveling public at all times.  Please use caution and be aware of your surroundings when navigating through the construction and detour areas.  For updates and information, visit our website www.fbctra.com.
