Segment I-2, from I-10(E) (the East Freeway) near Mont Belvieu to SH 146 in Baytown was the second leg of SH 99 constructed. The project began in 1991. A DEIS, schematics, and FEIS were prepared. The Record of Decision was signed in August 1998. A construction contract for the area from I-10(E) to FM 1405, known as Segment I-2A was awarded in 2003 and the road opened to traffic in March 2008. A construction contract for the area from FM1405 to SH 146B in Baytown, including a second bridge over Cedar Bayou, was awarded in July 2013. Construction for this portion is on-going.
