State gives green light to start Grand Parkway design work Ultimate Katy: ” by NOLAN HICKS, AUSTIN BUREAU published February 25, 2011 5:39 am
 
AUSTIN — The state Transportation Commission on Thursday granted the Texas Department of Transportation authority to begin design work and negotiating contracts to build a key segment of the Grand Parkway. The unanimous vote did not, however, authorize funds to start work on Segment E of the tollway, which would link the Katy Freeway to the Northwest Freeway, just west of Fairfield. ‘The Grand Parkway project is an important project for our region and our state,’ said state Sen. Tommy Williams, R-The Woodlands. ‘Having a loop that passes around Houston, whether it’s the third or fourth loop depending on where you start counting them, … will help reduce congestion and facilitate economic development.'”
