“Search and Rescue in Community Disasters” is being offered to all Bryan residents to help them prepare for the possibility of a disaster event.
Improvements on the William J. Bryan (WJB) Corridor, from Texas Avenue to Earl Rudder Freeway, will be the topic of discussion at an upcoming public meeting hosted by the City of Bryan on Thursday, February 8, 2018, from 4 PM to 7 PM. The meeting will take place at First United Methodist Church in the gymnasium located at 506 E. 28th Street in Bryan.
WHAT: WJB Corridor Improvement Project Public Meeting
WHEN: Thursday, February 8, 2018 – 4 PM to 7 PM
WHERE: First United Methodist Church Gym – 506 E. 28th Street in Bryan
The purpose of the WJB project is to improve safety and mobility for vehicular, pedestrian, and bicyclist travel, and to consider the blend of residential, commercial, park, and historic properties in the area. The project would 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
The City recognizes the importance of working alongside the public to develop plans that reflect community values, improve travel, and enhance the character and nature of the area. The public meeting will allow citizens the opportunity to learn about the improvement project, provide feedback on the roadway’s existing conditions, and share their needs or preferences for the project before any conceptual ideas are developed. No formal presentation will be given and attendees are invited to come-and-go at their convenience.
Comments will be accepted beginning February 8 and can be submitted at the meeting, online through the WJB project website, or by mail to:
