The Texas Department of Transportation will close northbound lanes of Hwy. 6 each night from March 14-23 due to ongoing construction on the road, according to a city of Sugar Land news release.

Travelers in the area should expect closures from Hwy. 59 to First Colony Boulevard nightly from 8 p.m.-5:30 a.m.


TxDOT is in the final stages of a project to expand Hwy. 6 from six to eight lanes between Lexington Boulevard and Brooks Street. Completion of the $12.1 million expansion is anticipated later this month.

Residents are advised to avoid the area, if possible; to expect delays; and to watch for construction crews.
