TIPS FOR DRIVING & SHELTER UPDATES
Treat broken traffic signals as four-way stops
Bryan, TX – The cities of College Station and Bryan ask residents to be careful while driving if power outages occur.
In Bryan, officials ask that drivers treat all intersections that have in-operable traffic signals as a four-way stop. Dale Picha, of Bryan’s Traffic Operations Division, states, “We need Bryan residents to stay off the roads during the storm, and be aware of their surroundings as they navigate the roads after the storm passes.”
In College Station, the city has five major intersections with uninterrupted power sources (UPS). Those intersections are: University at Lincoln, University at Tarrow, University at Texas, University at S.
College and Wellborn at George Bush. Each intersection has 3 hours of power. Mark Smith, College Station’s Public Works Director, says “If power goes out, we will be able to maintain traffic flow at these points with UPS, but we too need our residents to treat intersections with broken traffic signals as a four-way stop.”
