The area will also see improvements to drainage and utilities. Resurfacing of sidewalks, raised medians, pedestrian signals at intersections, and larger ADA-compliant sidewalks are also included in the project.

“This project would go out for tender next year, and we will start to see construction activity happening between Texas Avenue and Highway 6 just a little east of where the post office is in this area,” Kaspar said. “We’ve been working on this stretch of road for a few years and can’t wait to see it go into construction.”

Five Miles of Texas Avenue along the 6 bus will also see major infrastructure improvements. The projects will run from Old Hearne Road to University Drive. The proposed improvements will take place in two stages. Phase 2A would construct elevated medians from 15th Street, just south of SH 21, to University Drive. Phase 2B would build shared-use pathways and sidewalks along Texas Avenue.

“We look forward to these improvements. Several phases to the south of this project will continue to be developed in design, and the start of construction tendering and award could occur for one of these phases at the end of the year. summer next year,” Kaspar said. “By the end of next year, we will begin to see the raised medians being built along the Texas Avenue boundaries from where we left off with the phase one project to University Drive. at College Station.”

These projects are expected to begin between early spring and summer 2022.
