Construction Advisory

The Texas Department of Transportation is advising that drivers can expect delays Jan. 23–25 near the intersection of FM 2818 (Harvey Mitchell Parkway) and FM 60 (University Drive/Raymond Stotzer Parkway). Pavement surface reconstruction will require limiting traffic to one lane each direction on FM 60 and closing the Turkey Creek eastbound on-ramp near Easterwood Airport.

These closures will begin at 8:30am, Tuesday morning and remain closed until Thursday afternoon. Police officers will be present at the intersections on each end of the FM 60 overpass to assist with traffic due to the lack of left turn lanes.

This work is required to switch traffic to the next phase of construction. This phase will last approximately three months until mid-April, weather permitting. During this next phase motorists will not have access to the direct ramps that connect to FM 60 and FM 2818. All maneuvers will unitize the T-intersection for turning movements. Drivers can expect this to cause traffic to backup during peak traffic times. TxDOT advises all motorists to utilize alternate routes to avoid delays.


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.

Bush-Wellborn Crossing

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.

University Pedestrian Improvement Project

Transportation Services received notice that the City of College Station’s contractor has begun work on a project to improve pedestrian safety along University Drive near campus. The project will install wider sidewalks, median improvements and upgrade traffic signals with improved pedestrian crossings. The project is expected to complete by the end of the year.

University Pedestrian Improvement Project

The first phase of work is between Spence and Bizzell Streets adjacent campus and includes an east bound lane closure along University Drive. Pedestrians will be routed around the current work zone for safety.
