COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - Some big changes could be coming to a busy corner in College Station. the city and TxDOT are looking to redesign Jones Butler Road at FM 2818. Plans include a flyover bridge over that intersection.

"If you're on 2818 coming from the high school headed towards the airport you're going to go over Jones Butler. You won't even know it's there," explained Troy Rother, College Station City Traffic Engineer.

The project could also help ease the congestion at Holleman Drive and 2818.

The city says the cost is expected to be about $5 million. The Bryan/College Station Metropolitan Planning Organization is planning to look at a resolution funding the project Wednesday morning.
