[ARCHIVED] State Highway 6 (from Brooks St. to Lexington Blvd.)

Update: February 15, 2019

TxDOT’s temporary nighttime and early morning hours lane reductions on SH6 (from Brooks St. to Lexington Blvd.) scheduled for Wednesday, February 13 have been delayed and will be rescheduled in the near future. All other daytime project activities are taking place as scheduled.


Temporary lane closures will take place on SH6 (from Brooks St. to Lexington Blvd.) tentatively starting on February 13. The closures will be reserved to nighttime and early morning hours (9 p.m. – 5 a.m.) and will take place Sundays through Thursdays. Construction work is expected to last 14 months and will result in the widening of SH6, from six to eight lanes.

Residents are asked to be mindful of work crews and expect potential traffic delays. Visit for more information on Sugar Land travel time data.

This TxDOT project includes the relocation of utilities which require tree removal. It is TxDOT’s standard practice to clear the entire right-of-way (ROW) on these types of projects. During the design phase, city staff requested that only immediately impacted trees be removed. The original plan called for the removal of 175 trees in the approximately 2 acres of acquired ROW. The diligence of city staff resulted in the preservation of 88 of the 175 trees, approximately 50% of the trees originally identified to be removed will be saved. Daytime lane closures are already taking place for utility relocation and tree removal, Monday-Friday 9a.m-3p.m.  Learn more about Sugar Land’s Tree City USA designation and efforts to ensure our tree canopy continues to thrive at 

This is another project that is intended to improve mobility, the number one concern of residents as expressed in our most recent citizen satisfaction survey; address safety along one of our busiest roadways, ensuring Sugar Land remains safer than ever before; as the city’s commitment to aggressively investing in infrastructure continues.
