TX Transportation Commission Awards Contract for Next Leg of Grand Parkway

Houston Chronicle reports, “Houston’s growth may have slowed, but development of the Grand Parkway has barely missed a beat, with 44 miles of the northeast segment the latest to move from the drawing board toward construction. The Texas Transportation Commission on [March 28] chose Grand Parkway Infrastructure [a Ferrovial Agroman US, Granite Construction, and Webber, LLC team] to design and build the upcoming stretch from Interstate 69/U.S. 59 near New Caney to Interstate 10 east of Baytown. The tollway extension is estimated to cost $1.25 billion.”
