Three Announcements from the Bryan TxDOT OfficeFeatured Stories, News Friday, November 8th, 2013
Motorists who use Highway 21 east of Bryan between Democrat Road and FM 974 will have four lane traffic starting Tuesday (November 12). The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) says new eastbound lanes will open and westbound traffic will remain on the current roadbed. Drivers are advised to watch for construction workers and their equipment because it will take at least two days to complete the necessary striping for westbound traffic. Once this change has occurred, the contractor will continue working to upgrade the westbound lanes for the duration of the $13.3 million dollar project, which is expected to wrap up next spring.
Bryan is the first location of a statewide series of public hearings held by TxDOT as part of the year 2040 Texas Transportation Plan (TTP 2040). The hearing is Thursday (November 14) from 4 until 7 p.m. at the TxDOT Bryan district office at 2591 North Earl Rudder Freeway. TTP 2040 will define TxDOT’s long-range goals, priorities and resource allocation for multiple transportation modes, including roadways, transit, freight, and pedestrian and bicycle travel. The plan also will address the state’s aging infrastructure and growing population.
