Construction to Affect Twin Cities' Traffic

By  | 

Beginning Monday morning, traffic in parts of south College Station and west Bryan could be slowed down.

TxDOT will close the west frontage road between Pinon and Ponderosa. The work is in preparation of a future Rock Prairie Road exit ramp.

The turnaround of the southbound Highway 6 exit ramp to Rock Prairie will also be closed and removed.

The frontage road between Ponderosa and Deacon will remain closed during the construction, and the frontage road between Pinon and Rock Prairie will be converted to one-way traffic.

As part of Phase Two of the Beck Street extension project, Bryan will also undergo construction beginning Monday.

Beck Street will be closed from Richard Street to Palasota Drive. The closure will only allow one-way, eastbound traffic flow. Westbound traffic will be detoured via Anita and Bamboo Streets.

Homes located on the north side of Beck Street within the construction area can only be accessed by eastbound traffic. Officials with the city also say driveway access will be interrupted for concrete preparation, placement and curing. Residents will be notified in advance.

The Beck Street Extension Project extends Beck westward all the way to Harvey Mitchell Parkway. The second phase of the project is expected to be completed by the summer.
