Update: Greens Prarie Trail Widening Project

  TXDOT’s contractor Knife River plans to begin work on the improvements at the intersection of Greens Prairie Trail & FM 2154 on October 24th. The scope of TXDOT’s project includes adding right and left turn lanes on FM 2154 at the intersection in both the north and south direction. As well as changing the vertical grades of the intersection to help accommodate a smooth transition over the new railroad crossing. The project manager for the TXDOT project is Connie Flickinger.

Also, Greens Prairie Trail between I&GN and FM 2154 and the new railroad crossing  are planned to be opened for use on October 25th. With the opening of Greens Prairie Trail the traffic signal at the intersection with FM 2154 will become active and Brazos County will close the railroad crossing at Straub Road on October 26th. With the new signal coming on line I would request that everyone use caution when approaching the intersection from all approaches and obey the commands of the signal. The vehicles along FM 2154 will have to get used to being mandated to stop at this intersection as well as seeing cross traffic from a 4 leg intersection. 

 


 

The City’s contractor Hassell Construction will begin to place traffic control for phase 1 of the widening project on Monday, October 3rd. With the placement of traffic control along Greens Prairie Trail from FM 2154 to Royder Road. Construction activities will begin immediately on the outside sections of the proposed roadway. Click on the link provided below where you can access the full set of plans. The duration of the project is 9 months and the anticipated completion date is July 2017.

For those who have mail boxes along Greens Prairie Trail, the contractor will be temporarily relocating them to the northwest corner of the Flagstone & Greens Prairie Trail so that the mail currier can access them.

As the project progresses we will provide updates when there are  major construction items that will change the effect of the project for the community (Phase Switch, Road Closures, etc.).

The Sheriff's Office Needs your Help!

PLEASE READ: Important Message from the Brazos County Crime Prevention Deputy Nathan Dennis

The Sheriff's Office has recently experienced a rise in reports of burglaries. During this time each year we tend to see increases in home burglaries, as more houses are unoccupied during daytime hours.

A current strategy for these thieves is to knock on the doors of a residence to check if anyone is home. If someone does answer the door the subject may ask for directions, or say they are looking for a certain person. If this happens to you, please lock the door and gather as much informaton on the subject and call your local Police Department or Sheriff's Office to report the incident.

The Sheriff's Office hs also seen an increase in vehichle burglaries. In most cases the vehichles that were burglarized were unlocked. We ask that you take all valuable items out of your vehichle and always lock it. If possible park your vehichle in a lighted area. Help us by being the eyes and ears of your Sheriff's Office.

If you see suspicious activity, contact 9-1-1 and report your concerns. The safety of our community does not have borders. It is the goal of every law enforcement agency to protect the citizens that they serve.

Reember... together we can make a difference in our community!

Seismic Survey

Dawson Geophysical is conducting a 100 square mile 3D seismic survey in Brazos County. They have a city permit to layout their equipment in city ROW. Tampering with or stealing these devices is considered a felony. The purpose of this survey is to image geological formations to aid in any future drilling for oil and gas. They are placing the recording devices in city ROW. They are placed in a grid pattern across a 100 square mile project. These devices have already been laid out in the right of way by the streets and will be down 3-4 weeks (weather permitting.) They request landowners to work around them if they have to mow. If you have any questions regarding the devices, please contact Jeff Seay with ITM at 817-919-8585 or jseay64@aol.com.

Please see the attached photograph of the devices.
