FROM THE CITY OF COLLEGE STATION:
The contractor has started on utility work south of the existing roadway starting this week. This work will require the daily closure of the eastbound lane on Greens Prairie Road between 8:30 am – 2:00 pm at the location that the work is taking place. The contractor will have a one lane/two way flagging operation to help traffic get around the lane closure while it is taking place. After 2:00 pm, the lane should be back open until the next morning. This work will be completed over the next 3-4 months.
UPDATE FROM PUBLIC WORKS:
Phase Two of the Greens Prairie Road widening project is underway, which will transform the two-lane asphalt road to a four-lane divided concrete surface from Arrington Road to the city limits near Castlegate II. The project is scheduled for completion in summer 2023.
The work will require 13 CSU streetlight poles — between Arrington Road and Castlegate Drive — to be disconnected within the next week and eventually removed. Ultimately, BTU will replace these lights near the end of the project. During the construction period, there will be no street lighting along this section of Greens Prairie Road.
