Downtown Bollard Installation

The City of Brenham received a grant from the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) for $23,500 to begin the Downtown Bollard Project. This project is designed to enhance the public safety of our downtown area during community events such as Hot Nights, Cool Tunes, Lighted Christmas Parade, Juneteenth Parade, Homecoming Parade, Washington County Fair Parade, and other events in the downtown area where large gatherings occur. The bollards allow for temporary closure of the street during downtown events to deter vehicular traffic from unintentionally entering the event.

At this time, the Bollard Project involves one alley and the following intersections:

During the bollard installation, the street will be closed for two days. The installation will be on a Monday (January 28 and February 4) and reopen Wednesday morning. Main St. and Alamo St. are not affected.

We understand and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we appreciate your patience as we work to open all streets as quickly as possible.
