GrandParkway Ground Breaking

On July 23, 2013, a ground breaking ceremony was held for three more segments of State Highway 99, also known as the Grand Parkway. These three segments connect Highway 290 in Northwest Harris County to Highway 59.

This 180-mile long outer loop around the City of Houston has been in the works for more than 40 years. During the 2011 Legislative Session, Representative Fletcher authored House Bill 2388 allowing for the completion of State Highway 99.
