Both southbound lanes of Dulles Avenue between Avenue E and U.S. Highway 90A will be closed beginning Sept. 6.
The two northbound lanes will accommodate two-way traffic while work continues on the southbound lanes. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes to avoid delays.
The work is part of a $9.5 million contract for the reconstruction of Dulles Avenue from Avenue E to U.S. Highway 90A. The project also includes intersection improvements at Cartwright Road, Lexington Boulevard and State Highway 6.
Construction is expected to last 18 months. The completed road will include:
● four lanes in each direction separated by medians;
● curbs and gutters;
● drainage improvements;
● decorative traffic signals, street lighting and sidewalks; and
● intersection improvements at Cartwright Road, Lexington Boulevard and State Highway 6
Project stakeholders include Sugar Land, the cities of Stafford and Missouri City, Fort Bend County and Water Control Improvement District No. 2.
