Transportation Commission Approves Funding for Construction in Brazos County

By  | 

AUSTIN — In an ongoing effort to improve safety and relieve congestion, today, the Texas Transportation Commission approved a construction interchange upgrade of SH 6 and Rock Prairie Road in Brazos County. This $5.4 million project was awarded to One Star Road Construction Ltd., to upgrade the existing interchange of SH 6 and Rock Prairie Road. This project is anticipated to begin in Fall of 2013 and be complete by Spring of 2015.

“As Texas roadways become increasingly crowded, we must find ways to relieve congestion without compromising safety,” said Phil Wilson, TxDOT executive director. “Keeping travelers moving safely and efficiently will continue to be an ongoing priority as Texas welcomes nearly 1,000 newcomers each day.”

“A first-class transportation system not only provides a tremendous impact to the immediate community, but also to the entire state as it improves commerce and mobility while creating jobs,” said Commissioner Jeff Moseley, Texas Transportation Commission. “We are pleased to see this project moving forward and look forward to the benefits and opportunities it will create.”

More details on the above project will be provided as the projects get closer to their start dates.
