Grand Parkway’ s impact to be the topic of discussion at August hearing

Construction continues on the Grand Parkway, and a hearing will be held Aug. 9 in Mont Belvieu as an opportunity for residents to hear about and discuss the environmental impact of Segments H and I-1.
The Grand Parkway is made up of 11 segments, which traverse the greater Houston area. The two segments in question, H and I-1, will eventually become part of a four-lane toll road, stretching the area from Highway 59 to Interstate 10, generally between FM 2100 and Highway 146 in Montgomery, Harris, Liberty and Chambers Counties.
The project study area includes both Mont Belvieu and Dayton locally, as well as New Caney. Up for consideration is an alternative route to the previously planned roadway. This plan would bring the roadway on a more centralized path through the Mont Belvieu area.
The hearing will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9 at Barbers Hill High School, located at 9600 Eagle Drive in Mont Belvieu. For more information, call 713-802-5072 or see the Grand Parkway Web site at
