College Station Traffic Slowdowns At Two Locations

Friday will mark one month since a water line leak was found in College Station under Barron Road near the freeway. From Wednesday through Friday, motorists going east on Barron won’t be able to get to the freeway. That’s to remove the pavement in order to replace the water line. After the line is replaced, Barron will be limited to one lane in each direction while the roadway is repaired.

Improvements to the intersection of Wellborn Road and Holleman Drive in College Station begin this week. The TxDOT Bryan district office advises there will be daily lane closures on northbound Wellborn Road through mid-May. That’s in order to relocate utilities and build a retaining wall. The $2.4 million dollar project will raise the intersection to assist motorists on Holleman crossing the railroad tracks. Weather permitting, completion is expected a year from now.
