COVID-19 cases are rising fast in our community, according to health officials. Every person and business MUST comply with the shelter-in-place order to stop the spread. If we continue on this path, number of cases will overwhelm our community’s hospitals. Officials will begin to enforce this order. If you don’t need to leave, stay home. Stricter steps may be required if people don’t stay home.
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.
