William J. Bryan Parkway construction updates

The project is broken down by zones and construction crews are moving from west to east on William J. Bryan (WJB) Parkway. Once it’s completed, these improvements will provide a much-needed upgrade to the driving, biking and pedestrian experience for everyone.

Timeline estimates are subject to change depending on factors like the weather and material lead times, but we’re always working to get all construction projects completed as quickly as possible.

Are the lane closures permanent? No.

It may seem like the single lanes on William J. Bryan are very tight right now. And they are. But that is mainly because of all of the construction equipment and work being done, and those lane closures are only temporary.

The completed WJB project will have two lanes on each side of the new raised medians.

Now, those two lanes will be narrower than they were before construction began, but this was part of the design of the project to help with traffic calming, and to provide space for sidewalk improvements, a shared-use path, and the medians themselves. Ultimately this project makes the whole WJB corridor safer to drive on, while also making it more aesthetically pleasing.
