Fort Bend’s two premier master-planned communities, Sienna Plantation and Riverstone, separated by a waterway since their inception, will be connected by year end when work crews complete a bridge over the Flat Bank Creek Diversion Channel.
Currently under construction, the bridge will connect Sienna Springs Road in Sienna Plantation to LJ Parkway in Riverstone, thereby creating a ‘back door’ to both communities and an alternative to Highway 6.
“Residents of both communities are going to enjoy this new accessibility between Sienna Plantation and Riverstone,” notes Alvin San Miguel, vice president and general manager of Sienna Plantation.
The bridge also will provide another route to the Fort Bend Parkway which currently is being extended from Highway 6 to Sienna Parkway, just south of the Sienna Springs Road intersection.
LJ Parkway currently ends just north of University Boulevard which was extended earlier this year to connect Highway 6 to U.S. 59. The parkway is named after Larry Johnson, founder of The Johnson Development Corp., one of Houston’s most noted master-planned community developers.
