Dulles Avenue will soon undergo major reconstruction and upgrades to the tune of about $16 million. Stafford City Council approved an interlocal agreement with the City of Sugar Land last week for the construction of Dulles Avenue from U.S. 90A to Avenue E for about 900 feet of road. That part of the project will cost $1.9 million. Stafford will provide $1.3 million of the construction costs to complete it and Fort Bend County will contribute about $600,000 from its mobility project funds. The balance of the project will be paid by Sugar Land, which is heading up the overall construction project. Sugar Land’s portion of the road is mostly on the east within its city limits. There is one small portion of the road, however, that belongs to Missouri City on one side of Dulles.
The reconstruction project is set to begin this spring and it is expected to be completed by Winter 2012 resulting in an improved road, curb and gutters with raised medians added between U.S. 90A and Ave. E.
Throughout the City of Stafford, Dulles will end up being a six-lane boulevard roadway, according to Public Works Director Lawrence Vaccaro. South of the city limits, Dulles will be a four lane boulevard. “With the amount of traffic that stacks up at 90 A,” Mayor Leonard Scarcella said that the six lanes, three going and three coming, would represent a relief to vehicular traffic at that TxDOT intersection.
Motorists, get ready for a bit of inconvenience that will be over in less than a year for what will turn out to be a far better thoroughfare for many years to come.
