Attention Sugar Land Drivers: Bridge 59’s 13-month Renovation Begins Tonight

If you drive through Fort Bend County on Highway 59, get ready for a year of detours and delays around the Oyster Creek Bridge.

SUGAR LAND, Texas. We have received a severe traffic warning for drivers in Sugar Land and nearby communities. A massive 13-month major lane renovation project for the Highway 59 bridge at Oyster Creek begins tonight, according to the City of Sugar Land.

TxDOT will block southbound traffic lanes near the bridge from Friday 9:00 pm to Saturday evening, January 14. Southbound drivers will exit onto the front road towards Route 6 before returning to Route 59.

Once they finish the south side, they will close the northbound lanes sometime Saturday night until January 15th. Northbound drivers will exit onto the front road towards Williams Trace Boulevard before re-entering at 59.

Crews will be setting up new traffic configurations on both sides for the first phase of the Oyster Creek project.

Traffic officers will help drivers overcome obstacles.

Once the Oyster Creek bridge crossing is completed, there will be four main lanes in each direction, but there will be no HOV or shoulders for the next 13 months.

The HOV lane and shoulders from each direction will be “reallocated” to the construction site for bridge replacement work. Drivers are asked to be attentive to the work crews.

You can find more information about this and other projects on the TxDOT Project Tracking website.
