Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible, across the Brazos Valley, Saturday afternoon and evening. Winds in excess of 40-60mph are the main concern, within the strongest activity. An isolated, brief tornado threat cannot be ruled out. Heavy rainfall between 1" and 3" has the potential to cause localized flash flooding in a few locations.
TxDOT officials took their vision for one crowded road to the public.
At a hearing Thursday evening at the Physicians Center, residents, property owners and others took a look at plans for FM 60 between Highway 6 and FM 158.
If approved, the road would go from two to four lanes and have a median. To make the changes along the 1.7-mile stretch would cost $12.6 million according to TxDOT, with the project lasting upwards of three years.
TxDOT officials estimate 19,000 cars will travel the already-crowded stretch each day by 2008. That's up from 2005's average of 14,200.
Few concerns about the project were voiced during the meeting. Among them was a wish for designated bike lanes.
