BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - At 7:30 p.m. on Friday, FM 2818 will close from Raymond Stotzer Parkway to George Bush Drive, with a plan to reopen Monday, June 13 at 6 a.m.

Wellborn Road and Texas Avenue will remain available during this closure, and detour signs will be in place to provide alternate routes, according to TxDOT.

A large drainage structure will go into place across the full width of FM 2818. TxDOT said they’re doing it this way to prevent reduced lanes and slower traffic over the course of months.

“The single placement not only reduces the overall time to completion of the project, but is projected to provide a cost savings of over $200,000 to the State,” according to a statement from TxDOT.

This is part of a larger project that spans north of Raymond Stotzer Parkway to Wellborn Road. The $47.6 million project aims to improve safety, enhance capacity and address congestion along FM 2818 by converting the corrido to a “Super Street” design, according to TxDOT.
