SH 47 Resurfacing Project

SH 47 ramp closure

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has notified Transportation Services of the following project details:

The ramp connecting the SH 47 frontage road to SH 47 between HSC Pkwy and FM 60 will be closed Thursday, April 20 from 8:30am to sunset. The ramp will be resurfaced during this time.

The connector from SH 47 to eastbound FM 60 will remain open throughout the resurfacing project.

This will primarily affect people leaving the Texas A&M Health Science Center via HSC Pkwy.

Getting to eastbound FM 60 (College Station) from HSC Pkwy:
These vehicles will need to turn right (north) onto SH 47, turn around at Villa Maria (FM 1179), and head south on SH 47 to reach the FM 60 connector.

Getting to westbound FM 60 (Snook) from HSC Pkwy:
These vehicles can turn left onto the frontage road and turn right onto FM 60 heading west towards Snook. Traffic will not be able to turn left onto FM 60 from the frontage road.

Project Information

The entire project will rebuild the bridge and intersections into a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI). It will be the third interchange of this type in the State of Texas. This project is contracted to Knife River Corporation-South for $13.8 million and should take approximately 25 months to complete.

More information about the project and a video simulation of the final interchange can be found on the TxDOT website. TxDOT and their contractor thank everyone for their patience during this construction.
