PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  TxDOT proposes to build an approximately 37.4 mile long, controlled-access toll road with intermittent frontage roads within a 400-foot ROW beginning at US 59/IH 69 and terminating at IH 10 East.  The proposed project would be located in the northeast section of the planned SH 99 (Grand Parkway), an approximately 184-mile circumferential facility around the Houston metropolitan area.  The proposed action is the portion of the Grand Parkway known as Segments H and I-1 and is included in the Houston-Galveston Area Council’s 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (approved September 11, 2015) and the area’s 2013-2016 Transportation Improvement Plan.  The ultimate design for this facility consists of a four-lane at-grade controlled-access tollway with grade separations (overpasses) at major intersections within a 400-foot ROW width. Traversing part of Montgomery, Harris, Liberty, and Chambers Counties, the proposed new highway would provide access to IH 10(E) and US 59/IH 69 (radial freeways). The activity would include the discharge of fill material into waters of the U.S. associated with the construction of roads, embankments, bridges, culverts, drainage ditches, outfall channels and detention ponds.
