Woo Hoo Grand Parkway sections F-1 and F-2 after being delayed are scheduled to open Feb. 8 and tolls will be free until Feb 15. This has been a LONG TIME COMING!  When we moved here 19 years ago we started hearing about the Grand Parkway and for many years it was just rumors. In reading about the history of the Grand Parkway the idea was actually conceived back in the 1960's so I am not kidding when I say this has been a long time coming.

The above picture is at the Kuykendahl interchange and you can still see the orange cones but what you don't see in the picture is anyone working on the road. For many places in Northwest Harris County (us included) this is going to make access to major thoroughfares easier. I have to admit they did complete it in a relatively short period of time even though it feels like it has been forever. We live in an area where it seems like we have to go under or over it on almost a daily basis so YES I AM VERY EXCITED!
