LYNYRD SKYNYRD

The legacy began some 41 years ago in Jacksonville, Florida, and halted for a decade by the 1977 plane crash that killed three band members, including Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines. Since then, the band tragically lost Allen Collins, Billy Powell, Leon Wilkeson and Hughie Thomasson, yet Lynyrd Skynyrd rocks on with original member Gary Rossington joined by Johnny Van Zant, Rickey Medlocke, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael Cartellone, Johnny Colt, Peter Keys, Dale Krantz Rossington and Carol Chase.

The rock and roll powerhouse continually tours, this summer heading out on their second run with Bad Company. 2014 marks the 8th year for their annual Simple Man Cruise, a four day voyage filled with the best music in Southern Rock including an outdoor beach show featuring Lynyrd Skynyrd for the first time in the cruise’s history.

And so Skynyrd stands, “still unbroken.” “People may say, ‘they need the money,’ well I don’t think any of us need the money,” Van Zant says. “It’s just that we love the music, it’s bigger than the money, it’s not even about that any more. We have to make a living, sure, but it’s about the legacy of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and what it stands for, what the fans are all about. There’s nothing like getting out there playing a great show with Skynyrd and seeing people love this music.”

Adds Rossington, “We’re still standing, still keeping the music going. We wanted to do the guys who aren’t with us any more proud, and keep the name proud, too.”

With a catalog of over 60 albums, sales beyond 30 million worldwide and their beloved classic American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” having over two million downloaded ringtones, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a cultural icon that appeals to all generations.

About SH 99 F-G Project


The Grand Parkway, SH 99, is a 180 mile scenic parkway encircling the Houston region. Original discussion for the Grand Parkway was initiated in the early 1960’s as part of a long-range mobility study to support Houston’s projected growth. The SH 99 project is a partnership between the state, local governments, agencies, and landowners. A controlled access parkway with four lanes, two lanes each direction and intermittent access roads, the comprehensive footprint crosses seven counties: Harris, Montgomery, Liberty, Chambers, Galveston, Brazoria, and Fort Bend.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) approved the award of the State Highway 99 project segments F1, F2 and G, to Zachry-Odebrecht Parkway Builders. These segments total approximately 38 miles in length running through Harris and Montgomery Counties. The project consists of more than 120 bridges, frontage roads and associated drainage, as well as utility infrastructure. Extensive environmental studies have been made to ensure appropriate planning for retention ponds, as well as wildlife and vegetation habitat considerations.

Zachry-Odebrecht Parkway Builders is a design-build joint venture that assembled a team with deep engineering and construction resources, significant local knowledge and experience, and complex transportation project experience to design and build SH 99, segments F-1, F-2, and G.

The Zachry-Odebrecht Parkway Builders team challenged its design and construction members to develop a design and project approach that is innovative and tailored to meet TxDOT’s needs. The result is a value-added concept that brings technical solutions and cost reduction through the implementation of alternative technical concepts. Zachry-Odebrecht will create more than 1,200 direct local jobs throughout construction.

Notice to proceed for the $1.1 billion Project was issued by TxDOT on March 22, 2013 with an expected completion in late 2015.

Grand Parkway project objectives include:

  • Provide a circumferential transportation structure linking the interstate and highway system, enhancing mobility and benefiting economic growth for the Houston region
  • Provide additional hurricane and emergency evacuation routes for the greater Houston area
  • Provide a safe travel corridor for commuters
  • Provide much needed additional roadway capacity to help alleviate the increased traffic demand due to population and employment growth
