A study of the Wellborn Road corridor, a major north-south transportation link through College Station, began in the 1990s. The explosion of development in the southern part of the city has caused a rapid increase in traffic in recent years.

The Bryan-College Station Metropolitan Planning Organization (BCS MPO) consulted with a firm to study the possibility of relocating the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) through the community. That option was rejected when a consensus on an acceptable route wasn't reached.

The study did recommend grade-separated interchanges along the corridor, however. The planned interchange at George Bush Drive, for example, is one of the higher priority recommendations.
