All City of Bryan aquatic facilities will be closed July 26-29 and Williamson Skate Park will be closed July 28.
The City of Bryan is planning safety and mobility improvements on William J. Bryan Parkway (WJB) from Texas Avenue to Earl Rudder Freeway. This improvement project will identify needs for vehicular, pedestrian, and bicyclist travel as well as consider the blend of residential, commercial, park, and historic properties in the area.
As the area continues to grow and traffic increases on this vital thoroughfare, this is a unique opportunity to revitalize the corridor. The project will evaluate, study, and identify improvements considering:
- Safety and mobility for all users
- Access and connections for residents, businesses, park users, and neighborhoods
- Crash history and patterns
- Traffic congestion
- Drainage and storm water infrastructure
- Location and placement of utilities
“We want to work closely with citizens who live and visit the area to hear ideas and understand what is needed,” said Paul Kaspar, City Engineer for the City of Bryan. “Our goal is to introduce the project before any improvement options are identified and we are committed to providing multiple opportunities for the public to get involved and share their feedback with us.”
Currently, the project team is working to gather information, including performing survey work and traffic studies, taking photographs, and collecting data. The first public meeting for the project is scheduled for Thursday, February 8, 2018. The study is expected to be complete in fall 2018.
