The delays stem from underground utility conflicts the contractor discovered during excavation, according to Doug Adolph, Sugar Land’s media relations contact.
Adolph said the city, along with the utility company and the Texas Department of Transportation, has resolved the issue.
Construction is ongoing, and the city is not yet aware of the new timeline for completion.
Crews are working to pour concrete for the outside lane on the southbound side from Town Center Boulevard to Lexington.
City officials said the $12.1 million road-widening project, which is expected to be completed in December, is necessary to alleviate traffic in the area.
“Our residents continue to identify mobility as one of their top priorities,” City Engineer Jessie Li said in an email. “As one of the busiest intersections in our city, we have been working with the state to widen this important regional corridor.”
Li said the project to widen Hwy. 6 as well as the city’s adaptive traffic signal management initiative, which began several years ago, will promote better traffic movement in the area.
“Through that initiative and this planned widening, we anticipate great improvements to the level of service along this critical corridor in our community,” Li said in an email.
