Drivers on the Grand Parkway will pay higher tolls come Jan. 1, 2020, according to new toll rates approved by the Texas Transportation Commission on Oct. 31.
Toll rate escalation policies adopted by the commission in 2012 allow toll rates to increase each January by a percentage determined by the Texas Department of Transportation and reported to the TTC in October.
On Jan. 1, 2020, toll rates will increase 2% from the 2019 base toll rates for each segment of the Grand Parkway, according to the order approved Oct. 31.
Initial toll prices were also approved for toll gantries expected to be constructed at the existing on- and off-ramps at Riverwalk Drive in the Porter area with the completion of Riverwalk Drive at Hwy. 99, according to meeting information.
When asked to comment on the toll increase, TxDOT officials deferred to the minute order approved Oct. 31, which cites Minute Order 111410 effective March 25, 2009. In Minute Order 111410, TxDOT and the seven counties in which the Grand Parkway is located agreed on terms for establishing baseline toll rates and toll escalation policies for the Grand Parkway. These toll escalation policies were established for segments D, E, F-1, F-2 and G in December 2012.
The toll rates below take effect Jan. 1, 2020.
