[ARCHIVED] 7th Street – Project Updates

Update: Friday, January 24
Work is set to continue along 7th Street between West Green Circle and West Lake Circle. 7th street is expected to continue to be one way from West to East until construction is completed in June 2020.

Motorists are asked to mind traffic signs and not drive West on 7th Street at this time.

In addition, we request residents are asked to be mindful of work crews, expect traffic delays, and when possible, avoid the area to prevent traffic congestion. Visit for more information on Sugar Land travel time data.

Check out the CIP Story map for more information about this project.

Work continues on drainage improvements, street reconstruction and water line rehabilitation along Muirwood Lane and 7th Street between the City-owned Park and Woodlake Circle.

The city is performing some additional survey and confirming design elevations for the Right-of-Way and driveways. A survey crew working for the city and one of our inspectors will be working during the next couple of days performing the survey of the street, sidewalk, and driveways next to the garage doors. Our contractor and inspector will be properly identified.

Muirwood Lane – Partial Closing
Partial closure of the northbound lane of Muirwood (around the area of 7th Street) will take place on November 18 through February 20, 2020.

During this time, all homes will have access to their driveways until work begins in front of their driveway, (approx. 5 driveways at a time). For 2 weeks, the residents of these 5 homes will be unable to access their driveways/garages, but they will be allowed to park down the street in the section that is not under construction. By the end of the 2nd week the portion of the street will be completed and driveway access will be restored. We appreciate residents’ patience and cooperation.
