There’s this unexplainable thing that makes Bryan special. It’s how friendly everyone is, their pride in the community. And, as we welcome hundreds of new residents each year, there becomes more and more to love about the city.
West 17th Street from Harlem Lane to Columbus Avenue will be closed from Monday, Feb. 3 through the end of July, 2020 as part of a capital improvement project to improve stormwater drainage in the area.
The project will include construction of new box culverts under West 17th Street and channel modifications immediately upstream and downstream of the project. These improvements will address flooding issues that require the roadway to be closed during heavy rain events and will create a safe, accessible route into and out of the neighborhood.
Westbound traffic on West 17th Street will be detoured on Columbus Avenue and West Martin Luther King Jr. Street. Eastbound traffic will be detoured on Harlem Lane to West Martin Luther King Jr. Street.
This project was one of the highest ranked projects in the City of Bryan’s Stormwater Master Plan and was part of the approved FY2014-FY2018 Capital Improvement Program.
