COLLEGE STATION-BRYAN - TxDOT's most recent project, a nearly $10 million venture to upgrade the State Highway 6 (SH 6) ramps from Boonville Rd. in Bryan to FM 2818/Harvey Mitchell Pkwy. in south College Station, began in May and is expected to take two years to complete.

With 77,700 vehicles driving that part of SH 6 each day, TxDOT lowered the speed limit between University Dr. and Harvey Rd. to 60 mph starting last week.

All six projects are on schedule, though some are expected to be completed as late as December 2014.

TxDOT is also working to widen the roadway from Democrat Rd. to the Navasota River, a $13.4 million project.

Expected to reach completion in September is the almost $5 million project to add turn lanes, medians and signal upgrades on Briarcrest Dr. from the highway to Kent St. Some 36,000 vehicles drive through the area every day.

Crews have been working to create a grade separation between Harvey Mitchell Pkwy. and Villa Maria since February of last year. That $14 million venture is expected to be complete by the end of next summer.

University Dr. is getting a revamp too as crews work to widen the roadway from SH 6 to Boonville Road.

As Texas A&M campus expands westward, TxDOT is working on a new Texas 47 interchange at Health Science Center Pkwy — an almost $10 million project expected to be ready in the fall.
