FBCTRA Now Accepting Sign and Right-of-Way Permit Applications Online

Sign Permits

As of May 1, 2019, pursuant to the amended Sign Regulations approved by the Fort Bend County Commissioners Court on April 23, 2019, all sign permit applications must be submitted directly to Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority (“FBCTRA”), instead of Fort Bend County, for review and approval. However, sign permits previously submitted and approved through the Fort Bend County permitting process will remain valid, pursuant to the terms of the updated Sign Regulations.

Prior to submitting a sign permit application, please review your submittal thoroughly to ensure your sign plans comply with the updated Sign Regulations, which govern the placement, size, and certain aspects of sign design, to achieve visual continuity, reduce sign clutter, and enhance driver safety along Grand Parkway, Westpark Tollway, and Fort Bend Parkway (“County Toll Roads”). These regulations help establish the permitting, construction, maintenance, and alternation requirements for all signs placed along County Toll Roads.

All applicants are required to submit sign permit applications, sign plans, and payment via the Permit Application Portal. Generally, it takes ten (10) business days to complete the sign permit review, pending no outstanding permit or processing issues. For all questions regarding the sign application process, refer to the updated Sign Regulations or email permits@fbctra.com or call (832) 735-7385.
