Street Reconstruction - First St.

Beginning Tuesday, August 13, the City of Brenham Street Department will be reconstructing First St. from Austin St. to the Rail Road tracks, and First St. from Key St. to Jackson St. Reconstruction will begin Tuesday and last for approximately two weeks, weather allowing. Reconstruction of the roadway will be done in phases throughout this period. During the time of construction and through the hours of 7:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. this section of roadway will be limited to vehicular traffic throughout the work zones. City staff will work with businesses to get access to throughout this process.

This reconstruction process will involve tilling up the existing roadway, grading the sub-base and adding bulk cement to stabilize the sub-base.  After the cement is applied, a 2” asphalt layer will be added to the new roadbed which will improve the surface of your street for many years to come. As with any construction project, there will be times, especially as cement is added to the roadway that dusty conditions will be noticed. Please be patient with our crews and work zones.
 
Also, please park all cars in driveways or off of the roadways between the hours of 7:00 am- 5:00 pm.  
 
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call.
