Roadwork to widen Dairy Ashford Road from Hwy. 59 to just north of Hwy. 90A was completed in March, and all lanes are now open, according to Doug Adolph, Sugar Land’s media relations contact.

Adolph said the work, which began in July 2018 and cost the city of Sugar Land and Fort Bend County $4.73 million, is a part of the city’s thoroughfare plan and its hike and bike master plan.

“Dairy Ashford was designed and reconstructed to improve capacity, reduce delays and improve mobility between 59 to north of 90A,” Adolph said in an email.

The scope of the project included widening several segments of Dairy Ashford Road in both directions.

Northbound Dairy Ashford was widened from four to five lanes approaching Hwy. 90A and from two to three lanes between Hwy. 90A and Julie Rivers Drive.


Southbound Dairy Ashford was widened from two to three lanes between Hwy. 90A and Parklane Boulevard and from four to six lanes approaching Hwy. 90A.

The project also added a 6-foot sidewalk on the west side of Dairy Ashford and a 10-foot trail on the east side of the road. Additionally, construction eased the entries and exits to the Sugar Land Business Park along Dairy Ashford.

“These major improvements are anticipated to increase the level of service along the roadway as well as walkability for pedestrians by increasing safety with the newly improved sidewalk and trail system,” Adolph said in an email.
