FM 3180 & FM 2354 Corridor (Eagle Drive)
In partnership with the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) for funding and development, TxDOT approved a series of construction projects along the FM 3180 & FM 2354 corridor from I-10 to the Fisher Road area in the Mont Belvieu, Baytown, and Beach City communities located in Chambers County. Some of these projects are under construction, while others are planned in the future.
The purpose of these roadway improvements is to reduce congestion, increase mobility and improve safety.
These projects do not require additional right of way or displacements.
TxDOT is committed to working with the public to minimize the environmental impact from construction projects as much as possible. Construction will be phased along this corridor due to funding constraints, and timing is subject to change.

More than 50 years later, this vision is becoming a reality with the design and construction of the remaining segments of SH 99 Grand Parkway, Segments H, I-1 & I-2. At 180+ miles, this circumferential scenic highway will be the longest highway loop in the United States, traversing seven counties and encircling the Greater Houston region, which is the fourth-most populous city in the United States.
In March 2017, the Texas Department of Transportation awarded the $855 million design-build construction contract for Segments H, I-1 & I-2 to Grand Parkway Infrastructure, a joint venture led by global infrastructure leader Ferrovial Agroman, along with Webber LLC and Granite Construction Inc.
Construction along the corridor, stretching from the US 59/IH 69 interchange to the north and SH 146 in Baytown to the south, commenced in 2018. Construction activities are currently underway, including bridge construction, roadway paving, right-of-way acquisition with property owners, and utility relocations.
- Segments H, I-1 & I-2 represent 52.8 miles of the 184 mile SH 99/Grand Parkway loop
- Acquisition of easements through 375+ land parcels
- 80 new or substantially reconstructed bridges will be built
- The first segment – Segment D – of SH 99/Grand Parkway opened in August 1994; the most recent segment – Segment G – opened in March 2016
