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.
On the west side of Houston, the Grand Parkway is open from US59S (Sugar Land) to I-10W (Katy) to US290 (Cypress). On the east side of Houston, the Grand Parkway is
open from I-10E (Mont Belvieu) south to FM1405 (Baytown). Portions of the Grand Parkway are toll facilities and you must have an electronic tag, Harris County EzTag,
TxTAG or NTTA TollTag, to use the road.
Other segments are under construction, from US290 (Cypress) to SH249 (Tomball) to I-45N (Spring) to US59N (New Caney) - these are set for opening in late 2015.
Specific dates will be announced as we get closer to opening.
Active planning and design of the highway began in the early 1980's with the designation of SH99 from US59S near Sugar Land to US290 near Cypress
in 1983 and the creation of the Grand Parkway Association and designation of the entire loop from SH146 in Galveston County near San Leon, around the south,
west, north and east sides of metropolitan Houston to SH146 in Harris County near Baytown. The current existing and proposed route can
be viewed in Google Maps by clicking this link.
