TxDOT is conducting a study of  SH 6 in Robertson and Brazos counties. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility options to improve this corridor’s safety and mobility, which may include a relief route for Hearne along with improvements in Bryan.

Details
SH 6 is part of the Texas Highway Freight Network, Texas Highway Trunk System and is a Hurricane Evacuation Route. It is a key corridor providing access to the Energy Sector as well as relief to other Energy Sector roadways. A section of the highway from Bryan to Hearne is dual-designated as US 190, which is part of the Central Texas Corridor (a Congressional-designated High Priority Corridor on the National Highway System). Most of the existing corridor consists of a 4 foot- flush median separating 4 lanes of high speed traffic. In addition, the study area’s road section and right-of-way limit options to improve safety and relieve congestion.

The study will:

  • Characterize land use and environmental features
  • Analyze current and future traffic
  • Study various alternatives
  • Develop and screen alternatives to determine benefits and shortcomings of each
  • Result in the identification of potential projects, when they are needed, and documented in an implementation strategy plan

TxDOT will work closely with local stakeholders, the Bryan/College Station Metropolitan Planning Organization and the public to receive their input to the study, and to guide TxDOT on improving SH 6. The study will include public meetings, offering the public information about the study and the opportunity to provide feedback to TxDOT. TxDOT will consider the feedback received in its decision-making process moving forward.
