The Texas Department of Transportation opened two of four direct connectors intended to provider smoother, safer access between the Grand Parkway and I-10. A fourth and final connector is slated to open at the end of the month.
"Those connectors will enhance the opportunity for people to get to and from, on and off of the Grand Parkway," David Gornet, Executive Director of the Grand Parkway Association said. "It will allow people to get onto I-10 more readily and get to the Katy area."
On June 16, TxDOT held a ribbon cutting for the direct connectors linking I-10 eastbound with the Grand Parkway north and southbound. The ribbon cutting was attended by state and local officials including the new TxDOT executive director, Lt. Gen. Joe Weber, TxDOT Houston District Executive Director Mike Alford, Katy Pro Tem Mayor Chuck Brawner and United States Congressman John Culberson.
