Grand Parkway Will Exceed 180 Miles Around Houston

State Highway 99 (SH 99, the Grand Parkway) is a proposed 180+ mile circumferential scenic highway traversing seven counties and encircling the Greater Houston region. The project has been shown on governmental planning documents since the early 1960's. The current existing and proposed route can be viewed in Google Maps by clicking this link.

Segments F-1, F-2 and G of the Grand Parkway, from US 290 to SH 249 to I-45N to I-69N (US59N) opened to traffic in early 2016. The toll rate in 2016 for a two axel vehicle (car or light truck) is about $0.20 per mile with F-1 (290 to 249) costing $2.30, F-2 (249 to 45N) costing $2.31 and G (45N to 59N) costing $3.01.
