The Grand Parkway Segments from New Caney to Baytown, Now Open!!

Get excited, the Grand Parkway project is opening new roadway segments today, May 19th!!

Motorists can now traverse the Grand Parkway/99 corridor from Hwy. 59 in New Caney to SH 146 in Baytown. These new roadway segments represent 52.8 miles of the 184-miles loop.

The Grand Parkway is a project that's six decades in the making. It was first unveiled as a concept in the early 1960s.

It's divided into 11 segments and when it's completed, it will go through seven different counties in the Greater Houston area.

It will stretch 184 miles, which is more than the 610 Loop and Beltway 8 combined. It will be the biggest loop road in America!

Check it out for yourself! Motorists can drive for free on the Grand Parkway until the tolls begin at midnight on Saturday, May 21st.
