HOUSTON - A 15.2-mile section of the Grand Parkway opened at the end of the year to connect I-10 and Hwy. 290 on the prairie west of Houston.

In addition, a 37-mile extension of the Grand Parkway is under construction on the north side of the city. The road will run close to the new ExxonMobil campus where 10,000 people will be employed by the energy giant.

“The Grand Parkway expansion is a game changer for Houston development,” said Woody Mann, President of Vista Equities Group. The Grand Parkway will someday circle Houston and increase mobility for business and residents fueling growth in North/Northwest Houston.

The Grand Parkway improvements, coupled with the ExxonMobil campus, scheduled to deliver in 2015, has raised the potential even higher for the northern suburbs, including The Woodlands.
