6 transportation updates to know this month


Several transportation projects are ongoing and being finalized in Sugar Land and Missouri City.

  1. Hwy. 6 improvements

This project focuses on widening Hwy. 6 from six to eight lanes by adding an outside lane in each direction from Brooks Street to Lexington Boulevard. Intermittent single lane closures are expected from mid-May through August as work crews relocate power line poles. Construction is set to begin in June and last about 14 months, said Doug Adolph, Sugar Land assistant communications director.

Timeline: June 2018-August 2019
Cost: $7.5 million
Funding sources: city of Sugar Land, Texas Department of Transportation, Fort Bend County
