City Begins ADA Accessibility Modifications to Municipal Office Building


MOB, BTU ADA Accessibility Improvements


On Tuesday, January 24, 2017, contractors will begin a four-phase project to improve accessibility to both the Municipal Office Building (MOB) and Bryan Texas Utilities (BTU). Modifications to the parking lot and sidewalks for the MOB entrance will start with the construction of a temporary ramp to be used during the reconstruction of the existing concrete ramp. The sidewalk along 29th Street from the Texas Avenue intersection to the first MOB driveway will also be reconstructed.

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. There also will be temporary lane closures along 28th and 29th Streets between Texas Avenue and the MOB driveways. Drivers are asked to obey traffic control signs and use caution.

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; replacement of parking lot lighting; and reconstruction of the sidewalk along 29th Street from the Texas Avenue intersection to the first MOB driveway. It is anticipated the project will continue through May 2017 with temporary closures of sidewalks and parking spaces during each phase. 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. Please contact Matt Dawson-Mathur by email at mdawson@bryantx.gov or by phone at 979-209-5030 for additional details pertaining to the project.
