The second phase of Wellborn Rd Lane Reconfiguration has been completed, and all lanes are now open to traffic.
Further adjustments will continue to be made in the coming weeks, but no significant disruption to traffic is anticipated.
The second phase of the project included restriping the lanes and installing new traffic signals.

A collaboration between TxDOT and TTI
The Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) is working with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to identify improvements needed at the Bush-Wellborn intersection.
Specific goals for the BWX, or Bush-Wellborn Crossing, include enhancing overall safety for the thousands of motorists,
bicyclists and pedestrians passing through the area daily while minimizing congestion at this critical intersection.
It’s a big challenge. Improvements proposed nearly a decade ago would require a minimum of two years of construction to complete,
with the Bush-Wellborn intersection partially or fully closed for at least six months of that time.
TxDOT and TTI are partnering to explore ways to minimize this disruption, and community input will be a meaningful part of this effort.
Over the last few months, TTI has collected comments, concerns and suggestions from the community regarding the Bush-Wellborn improvements.
This input is being considered as the intersection design, construction timeline and work zone mobility plans are reviewed.
Another round of community engagement will follow this fall to share project design options; construction staging and closure options;
the impact on businesses, adjacent neighborhoods the campus and the community; mobility strategies during construction; and other innovative opportunities.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is asking that drivers exercise extra caution when driving through the ramps and lanes at the interchange and be watchful for intermittent lane closures.
Construction vehicles will be entering and exiting the area.
TxDOT appreciates your consideration!
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.
