Texas Ave median project expected to be complete in two weeks
TxDOT is reconfiguring the median on Texas Avenue that goes from University Drive to Live Oak Street in College Station.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - Drivers are once again finding more median work happening in Aggieland.
This time it’s in College Station at one of the busiest intersections of the city.
The Texas Department of Transportation is reconfiguring the median on Texas Avenue that goes from University Drive to Live Oak Street in College Station.
One lane in each direction on Texas Avenue is closed as the crews extend the existing median across the Live Oak Street and Texas Avenue intersection.
TxDOT says this is being done in an effort to help alleviate the backup that sometimes happens on Texas Avenue near University Drive in the northbound lanes.
After work is complete, drivers on Live Oak Street will only have the option of turning north onto Texas Avenue.
“We are reconfiguring the median to provide more capacity at University Drive,” said TxDOT spokesman Bob Colwell. “The reconfiguration will include extending the median across Live Oak Street. The added capacity will improve the efficiency of the signal at Texas Avenue and University Drive. This work is part of the Texas Ave project that installed medians in Bryan and College Station. The businesses and the City of College Station were notified of the work prior to construction.”
Meanwhile, drivers should brace for extended delays in the area as the work continues. TxDOT is doing this work right in the middle of the fall semester at an intersection near campus and on a week the Aggies host an SEC opponent at home at Kyle Field.
The work is expected to be completed in two weeks.
