Location Advantage

Freeway access is easy in Katy using the Grand Parkway (Texas 99) loop around the Greater Houston area, and the Katy Freeway (IH-10). We’re centrally located between two international airports, George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), and Hobby Airport (HOU). We’re even closer to two corporate airports that handle everything from jets and prop planes to commuter flights.  Our three-county area is a transportation hub linking business and industry to one of North America’s largest rail service providers, Union Pacific.  The nation’s largest deep-water port for foreign commerce, the Port of Houston, is on our doorstep.
