Construction projects will affect roads in Brazos County beginning the next week, leading to lane closures and potentially altering traffic patterns.
According to a press release from the Texas Department of Transportation, a portion of Briarcrest Drive between Kent Street and Texas 6 will experience nightly lane closures beginning Monday and running through Friday. TxDOT will conduct mill and inlay services on sections of asphalt throughout the week.
Knife River teams will start a reconstruction project on Elmo Weedon Road from Bryan city limits to the area surrounding Steep Hollow Road in eastern Brazos County next week. According to a press release from Brazos County Judge Duane Peters, traffic will be reduced to one lane as workers replace culverts, make drainage improvements, update paving and stabilize subgrade beneath pavement. The project is projected to cost $4 million, and completion is expected in one year, barring weather delays.
Anyone interested in receiving updates on the project, including through text message notifications, is encouraged to visit www.gessnerengineering.com/notification.
Construction crews will begin work to widen Greens Prairire Trail to four lanes starting next week, according to a press release from the city of College Station. The project, which spans Greens Prairie Road from Royder Road to Long Creek Lane, is projected to last about 10 months. Pedestrians will not be permitted inside the work zone.
Motorists are warned to expect delays and to be vigilant in watching for equipment and construction employees on the roads.
On Greens Prairie Road in particular, pedestrian traffic to and from Greens Prairie Elementary, Pecan Trail Intermediate and Wellborn Middle Schools will be affected. Those pedestrians who use Greens Prairie Road as access to their child’s school, and those who use Greens Prairie Road to access the Creek Meadows Subdivision, must find an alternate route to the area, according to College Station city staff.
Motorists are encouraged to drive cautiously and expect delays at the start and end of the school day near the school campuses.
