Traffic on Grand Parkway 2 weeks after Harvey
Traffic was horrendous for the few weeks following Hurricane Harvey because flooding had not receded in certain parts of the city and we were forced to use only a few main routes. Highway 99 (Grand Parkway) traffic was especially heavy between 1093 (Westheimer) and I-10. This picture was on Sept 6, 2017, about 10 days after the hurricane. Traveling on 99 from the Westpark Tollway to Cinco Ranch Blvd (usually a 5 minute drive or less) took 30 minutes or so because you couldn't divert to side streets because of flooding.
