Bryan to open Nash Street
The City of Bryan is opening Nash Street for traffic next week, providing better access to the U.S. Post Office on William Joel Bryan Parkway.
The $1.5 million project, part of the city’s Capital Improvement Program, also includes activating traffic signals at the intersection of William Joel Bryan Parkway (F.M. 158) and Nash Street, and at Villa Maria Road and Nash Street. The signals are at each end of the newly constructed Nash Street, which will provide an additional connection between William Joel Bryan Parkway and Villa Maria Road.
As part of this project, Broadmoor Drive has been extended north to connect to Nash Street, and one of the U.S. Postal Service driveways has been closed on William Joel Bryan Parkway. A new driveway to the U.S. Postal Service can now be accessed off Nash Street, which provides for safer access and egress to the facility.
The city and its contractor, Brazos Valley Services, activated the two new signals to flash mode on Thursday, Nov. 6 for a six-day test period to allow motorists to become accustomed to the signals before they become operational.
On Wednesday, Nov. 12, the city will open Nash Street for traffic, activate both signals to a stop/go mode, open the intersection of Nash Street and Broadmoor Drive and remove the stop sign on northbound Broadmoor Drive at its intersection with Debbie Drive and Leila Court. Motorists traveling along William Joel Bryan Parkway, Villa Maria Road and Broadmoor Drive in this area are asked to proceed cautiously and obey traffic control devices.
