Brazos County Officials Emphasizing Closure Of Thru Traffic In Arrington Road Construction Zone

Monday began a new traffic headache for motorists in south College Station.

Arrington Road is closed between Old Arrington and Mesa Verde for at least the next five months for road construction.

The only access is for homeowners, property owners, mail and trash service, and emergency vehicles.

Brazos County’s road and bridge department’s operations manager, Gary Arnold, told county commissioners Tuesday to direct any constituent calls to him.

Additional information from Brazos County:

Beginning Monday, April 15, 2019, Arrington Road in Brazos County Precinct 1 will be closed to through traffic for approximately five months.

The portion of Arrington Road between Old Arrington Road and Mesa Verde will only be open to home owners, property owners and construction projects along that area. Mail delivery, trash service and emergency services will also have access at all times. All other traffic will be rerouted.

The project will consist of reconstructing the roadway by realigning it to match the new right of way width, and installing a new pavement cross-section.

The new roadway will be widened to a 28 foot paved width.

The roadwork also includes installing new culverts with headwalls, and adjustment of domestic water lines.

Brazos County Engineer Prarthana Banerji says the timing of this project is important. “The existing pavement is showing dramatic signs of distress and deterioration, and does not have an adequate width or strength for the level of traffic it is supporting. The work is progressing now to support current growth in the area.” She adds, “We are trying, most importantly, to solve a conditions issue with this reconstruction project.”

The construction agreement is for $1,473,520.85, and is expected to take five months, weather permitting.
