With an appraised value of $4.849 million, Wallace Phillips has formally donated the 107-acre Phillips Event Center Golf Course located on Briarcrest Drive to the City of Bryan.
On Wednesday, May 24th, contractors will close the East 28th Street entrance to the parking lot that services both the Municipal Office Building and Bryan Texas Utilities (BTU) for reconstruction as part of the ADA accessibility modifications underway. It is anticipated this entrance will remain closed for approximately seven days, weather permitting. In addition, the eastbound, right-hand lane of East 28th Street between South Texas Avenue and South Tabor Avenue will be temporarily closed on Wednesday, May 24th, and is expected to reopen no later than Friday, May 26th.
This project is to improve accessibility to both the Municipal Office Building (MOB) and BTU. Improvements started with the construction of a temporary ramp and the reconstruction of the sidewalk along 29th Street from the Texas Avenue intersection to the first MOB driveway. Next, the East 29th Street entrance closest to South Texas Avenue and the sidewalk between the two East 29th Street entrances were completely reconstructed. After that, the sidewalk between Texas Avenue and the entrance on East 28th Street was reconstructed. The final phases will finish the sidewalk in front of the building as well as the parking islands.
During construction, visitor parking may be shifted and some parking spaces may be temporarily closed. Work areas will be fenced off, but visitors are encouraged to use caution and follow posted signage.
This accessibility improvement project also includes the following: replacement of existing up-lighting with LED bollards; modifications to improve accessibility between BTU and the MOB; reconstruction of parking lot medians; and replacement of parking lot lighting. It is anticipated the project will continue through May 2017. This project does not include interior modifications to the MOB or BTU.
Building access and accessible parking will be maintained throughout the entirety of the project.
