Street Reconstruction - Downtown
Following the 2019 Waterline Downtown Replacement Project, the City of Brenham Street Department will be reconstructing four (4) roadways in the downtown area. These streets are N. Park St, N. Baylor St., Vulcan St, and N. Douglas St. Reconstruction is scheduled to begin on August 3rd and last for approximately 6-8 weeks. Reconstruction of the roadway will be done in phases throughout this time period. During the time of construction and during 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 residents and businesses to gain access to homes and places of work 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 these streets 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 parking lots, driveways, or off the roadways between the hours of 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. Please do not park in the spaces along these roads. If you have a sprinkler system, we ask that you turn it off during this time or monitor that the water does not enter the roadway.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call.
