Starting Tuesday, April 23 – Thursday, April 25, field crews from Bryan’s Water Services Department will be performing smoke testing of the sanitary sewer lines to identify broken pipes and other defects.
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has recently awarded a $2.5 million maintenance contract to Knife River Corporation to replace the asphalt surface of Business 6 (Texas Avenue) from 0.5 miles north of SH 21 in Bryan to George Bush Drive in College Station.
The facelift will remove the existing asphalt surface and place a new asphalt surface along with new pavement markings; as well, as some miscellaneous curb repairs throughout. Asphalt construction during this time of year can often be very weather dependent. Fortunately, the lanes will be reopened each morning with the lanes filled back to the original grade. There should not be any drop-offs between lanes. So even if weather does not allow work on some days, it should not adversely affect the daily road conditions for drivers.
The work is planned to begin on Monday night February 4, 2019, and last a few months. Most of the work will occur during the night time hours from 7 PM to 6 AM, Sunday night thru Friday morning. Various lane closures will be set up during these night time hours; so, your patience and utmost attentiveness when driving through the construction zone are greatly appreciated. Driver safety and the safety of the workers are of the utmost importance.
Barring weather disruptions, TxDOT and Knife River look forward to a speedy completion and many years of extended pavement life and smooth roadway for drivers.
