College Station city council members spent more than one hour during their last meeting (January 27, 2022) discussing how to deal with traffic congestion.
After the staff presentation, there were questions about the status of a congestion study at Texas A&M. Councilman John Crompton wants the city’s plan to include addressing congestion within one mile of campus…and to get people on and off campus without using automobiles.
City manager Bryan Woods says city staff has expressed their positions to university officials.
Texas A&M transportation services executive director Debbie Lollar tells WTAW News they expect a draft of their final report in the next couple of weeks. After that, the draft will be reviewed and final edits will be made before it is published.
Councilman Crompton also expressed his opposition to Brazos County proposing a bond referendum for roads unless more than half of the county’s money benefits College Station. Crompton said that is because more than half of the county’s budget comes from College Station residents.
