The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), in partnership with the Bryan-College Station Metropolitan Planning Organization (BCS MPO), is planning for improvements to SH 6 from US 190/SH 21 to SH 40/William D. Fitch.
SH 6 is a vital north-south highway for Bryan, College Station, Texas A&M University, Brazos County and the region. It is part of the Texas Highway Freight Network, Texas Highway Trunk System and is a Hurricane Evacuation Route. It is a key corridor providing access to the Energy Sector as well as relief to other Energy Sector roadways. The existing corridor consists of 2 lanes in each direction separated by either a wide grass median or concrete traffic barrier.
Goals: improve safety, relieve congestion, widen SH 6 Central to a six-lane facility, provide bicycle and pedestrian connectivity and accommodate freight movements.
Improvements may include: add additional main lanes, extend auxiliary lanes, add collector-distributor lanes, improve interchanges, add U-turns at crossing streets, increase bridge clearance and improve bicycle and pedestrian accommodations on frontage roads.
TxDOT will work closely with local stakeholders, the Bryan-College Station Metropolitan Planning Organization and the public to receive their input, and to guide TxDOT on improving SH 6. The study will include public meetings, offering the public information about the project and the opportunity to provide feedback to TxDOT. TxDOT will consider the feedback received in its decision-making process moving forward.
