The City of Bryan recently issued a Request for Proposals seeking a world-class development partner for several blocks on the north end of our historic Downtown.
Bryan residents will soon see construction begin in various portions of the city, as Metronet, Inc. starts to build out their fiber optic network in the community.
Network backbone construction will first begin the week of Dec. 6, 2021 near the area of 29th Street and Carter Creek Parkway. Additional areas in Bryan will see construction throughout the coming weeks and months.
Residents and businesses in areas where construction will take place will receive mailed notifications when MetroNet plans to be in their area. Once construction begins. residents can expect to see construction teams in and around neighborhoods completing both aerial and underground work. MetroNet team member uniforms and vehicles are clearly marked with the MetroNet logo, making them easy to identify.
MetroNet uses cutting-edge installation technology, while actively minimizing the impact on properties within the construction areas. In neighborhoods with utilities on overhead poles, MetroNet will use that existing infrastructure. In areas with underground utilities, MetroNet uses state-of-the-art horizontal underground drilling machines to bury the fiber cables.
To pre-register, view construction areas, notify MetroNet of potential property concerns (such as the location of an underground sprinkler system or invisible dog fence, for example), visit https://construction.metronetinc.com/l/BryanTX.
