HOUSTON, TX -- Drivers around Spring and the Woodlands will have a very different evening rush home thanks to a new section of the Grand Parkway opening.
The newest section "G" is complete and will be open for drivers by late this afternoon.
The 12 1/2 mile stretch will connect I-45 to 59.
TxDOT says the goal is to save time and ease congestion for commuters in North Harris and Southern Montgomery counties.
This entire grand parkway project will cost over a billion dollars and won't be complete until 2020.
In the meantime you can enjoy this newest stretch for free the first week.
