99 Toll Road
99 Road – State Highway 99, also known as the Grand Parkway, spans seven counties in the Greater Houston area. It is divided into eleven segments that make a ring road together. SH 99 is located in Texas. It is 180 miles long.
SH 99 – overview
The Grand Parkway was opened in 1994. Now, it’s the longest beltway in the United States and, at the same time, the world’s seventh-longest ring road. In 2019, the road was given a secondary designation (a previous route designated SH 99 was opened in 1924) as the Mayor Bob Lanier Memorial Parkway. This is in honor of Bob Lanier who served as the mayor of Houston between 1992 and 1998. He participated in the creation of the SH 99. For construction and administrative purposes, the State Highway 99 project was divided into 11 segments. Most sections are owned and maintained by either the Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority or the Texas Department of Transportation.
There are various speed limits on SH 99. They vary between 65 and 75 mph (105 to 121 km/h). Tolls are in most cases paid using Texas toll tag transponders such as EZ TAG, TollTag,TxTag, K-TAG (the Kansas Turnpike Authority’s tag), or Pikepass (the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority’s pass). The entire route is cashless.

Don’t forget that license plate tolls aren’t allowed at all points on the Grand Parkway. The best option to pay tolls is to use one of the accepted transponder tags. If you have a toll billing issue, the best way to resolve it is to contact the specific tolling entity:
The Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority (FBCTRA). They operate and maintain the portion of segment D (from Interstate 69 South to north of the Westpark Tollway).
TxDOT. They operate and maintain portions of Segments D, E, F-1, F-2, and G from Interstate 10 to Interstate 69. They also operate Segment I-2 from Interstate 10 East to FM 1405.
Note that the HCTRA (the Harris County Toll Road Authority) doesn’t operate any segment of State Highway 99. Also, it’s important to remember that the toll road is all-cashless. It doesn’t mean that you are obliged to mount a transponder tag on your windshield, though. Online payments are also acceptable. For example, you can use the Uproad mobile application to easily manage all toll payments on your smartphone.
