Public Hearing Held For Proposed Brazos County Regional Mobility Authority

The Texas Transportation Commission could decide before the end of this month whether to approve local leaders request to establish a county-wide transportation organization.

That follows Tuesday’s public hearing on the proposed Brazos County regional mobility authority.

TxDOT Bryan district engineer Lance Simmons says public comments can be submitted through May 17.

Then all the public input will be forwarded to the transportation commission.

If approved, the RMA’s first project is a tunnel moving traffic under University through the Northgate district.

State legislation to add $10 dollars to vehicle registration fees for the RMA is now in the Senate after passing the House last week on a 99 to 43 vote.

Original story:

Anyone with an interest in the proposed Brazos County regional mobility authority (RMA) can participate in a public hearing Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the TxDOT district office in north Bryan.

According to the meeting notice, the RMA’s first project would rebuild University between Wellborn and Texas. An underground tunnel would bypass Northgate, while above ground there would be one lane of traffic in each direction and improvements for bicyclists and pedestrians.

Last month, county commissioners adopted a resolution supporting state legislation to increase vehicle registration fees by ten dollars. That would generate at least $1.5 million dollars a year for the RMA.
