Sugar Land – One of Sugar Land’s busiest roadways is getting revamped, but while the work is being done, it’s driving residents crazy.
So far, the Texas Department of Transportation has relocated 85% of the underground utilities, upgrades to 70% of traffic lights are complete and 35% of the road work is done.
A new lane on Highway 6 will run both in the northbound and southbound direction between Lexington Boulevard and the Southwest Freeway, expanding the highway from six to eight lanes.
Here’s a look at what’s already done:
- New traffic lights at brooks & lifetime fitness
- They’ve poured concrete for the new northbound traffic lane from the beginning of the project north of brooks (except for small areas as they’re waiting for utility work to wrap up).
- TXDOT is also done with construction for three new driveways into Chick-Fil-A, Imperial Medical Center and the mall.
Drivers can also look forward to a new traffic light at the Flour Daniel intersection in the next month.
The $12.1 million road-widening project is expected to be completed in December.
