More of Bryan residents' money will leave their pockets and hit the road if a recent proposal passes at the Bryan City Council.

Tuesday, council members will vote on an increase to the transportation fee.

Residential customers and small non-residential customers would pay an extra $4 a month. Medium non-residential customers would jump $24 a month, and large non-residential customers would pay $60 extra. Bryan residents and business would see the increase in the fee portion of their utility bills.

The transportation fund is used to reconstruct pavements on roads in Bryan. Since 1998, nearly half the city's existing roadways have had construction done with the money from this fund. The transportation fee appears on the utility bill. It’s shown as a transportation and drainage fee. This fee has been in place since 1998.

By increasing the fees, the city says they will be able to reduce the backlog for repairing roads. Right now the backlog is about 400 lane miles of street, worth about $57 million.
