Next phase of Dairy Ashford widening to affect Sugar Land drivers

Traffic will switch July 22 for continued construction on Dairy Ashford Road in Sugar Land.

Traffic will switch July 22 for continued construction on Dairy Ashford Road in Sugar Land.

Construction crews will install a permanent raised median at the intersection of Dairy Ashford Road and Parklane Boulevard beginning Jan. 29, according to the city of Sugar Land.

Traffic on Parklane will no longer be able to cross through Dairy Ashford. Instead, eastbound and westbound traffic will have to turn right at Dairy Ashford.

This change is necessary to ensure safety along this intersection, prevent accidents and improve mobility on this high-traffic road, the city said.

Construction began on Dairy Ashford in August to widen the road from four lanes to six lanes between Hwy. 90 and Hwy. 59.

The city said its project design-phase traffic study identified the potential of vehicles crossing six lanes of traffic as a safety issue. Project design then incorporated the raised median to prevent cross traffic and address safety concerns.
