Street Reconstruction - Old N. Market Street
Beginning Monday, April 19th, the City of Brenham Street Department will be reconstructing Old N. Market St. from N. Market St. to Riggs St. Reconstruction will begin Monday and last for approximately one to one and a half weeks. Reconstruction of the roadway will be done in phases throughout this time period. During the time of construction and during the hours of 8:00 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 to get access to residences 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.
On the day we apply bulk cement to the roadway from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. we ask you to not drive the roadway. If you drive on the cement before it has been thoroughly mixed into the subgrade it will get on your vehicle and possibly cause damage to the vehicle if not rinsed off in a timely manner. The day we lay asphalt will also be very limited to vehicular travel. If you are unsure of the road condition please ask one of the workers before you drive on the road.
Also, please park all cars in driveways or off the roadways between the hours of 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. If you have a sprinkler system in your yard we ask you to please turn it off during this time.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call.
