Sugar Land City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to award a $1,638,505 contract to Trans-Tex Construction, LLC for construction of a the Distribution System Water Main Rehabilitation Project.

The project includes replacement of approximately 16,500 linear feet of waterline in various areas of the city.
