BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - State Highway 6 will start to look different in 2024.

The Bryan/College Station Metropolitan Planning Organization hopes to make the highway more convenient for drivers.

Plans include an additional lane on both sides of Highway 6 going from Highway 21 to William D. Fitch. There will also be flyovers built near the University Drive exit and Business Highway 6 (Texas Avenue) near Deacon Drive.

Metropolitan Planning Organization Executive Director Dan Rudge says the project will make Highway 6 easier for those who are on it for a short time.

“My organization gets about $11 million a year to spend on transportation and we’ve leveraged that to a $500 million investment in highway infrastructure in Brazos County,” said Rudge.

Phase one of the State Highway 6 projects is expected to start around August of 2024.
