Specific goals for the BWX, or Bush-Wellborn Crossing, include enhancing overall safety for the thousands of motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians passing through the area daily while minimizing congestion at this critical intersection.
It’s a big challenge. Improvements proposed nearly a decade ago would require a minimum of two years of construction to complete, with the Bush-Wellborn intersection partially or fully closed for at least six months of that time.
TxDOT and TTI are partnering to explore ways to minimize this disruption, and community input will be a meaningful part of this effort. Over the next few months, TTI will be seeking comments, concerns and suggestions from the community regarding the Bush-Wellborn improvements. This input will be considered as the intersection design, construction timeline and work zone mobility plans are reviewed.
Another round of community engagement will follow to share project design options; construction staging and closure options; the impact on businesses, adjacent neighborhoods the campus and the community; mobility strategies during construction; and other innovative opportunities.
Let us know what you think. A brief online survey is now available for you to share your suggestions and preferences before plans are drafted. College Station ISD teachers, parents, students and administrators are encouraged to complete the survey at http://bwx-bcs.org.
