Due to recent residential growth, a new railroad crossing and the building of three schools by the College Station Independent School District, the City of College Station plans to widen Greens Prairie Trail from FM 2154 to Royder Road.
The two-lane asphalt roadway with ditches will be improved to a four-lane divided concrete roadway with curbs and gutters, and left and right turn lanes. The project will also include a traffic signal at Ledgestone and Greens Prairie Trail. The City of College Station is in the bidding process for the roadway widening and tentatively plans to start construction in October 2016.
The project is one of three road construction projects being undertaken along Greens Prairie Trail by governmental agencies. Here are the others:
- Brazos County has extended Greens Prairie Trail west of FM 2154 across Union Pacific Railroad to I & GN road. The new roadway and railroad crossing is planned to open in the fall of 2016.
- TXDOT will be making improvements to the intersection of FM 2154 and Greens Prairie Trail, including the addition of northbound and southbound dedicated turn lanes along FM 2154. The project will also change the vertical grades in the intersection to help accommodate a new railroad crossing being built by Brazos County. TXDOT plans to start construction in the fall of 2016.
A public meeting was conducted by the City of College Station and TXDOT on July 26, 2016, to provide information about the projects. Please see links below for exhibits showing the cross sections and layout for the projects presented at the public meeting, along with the roadway design plans for the city’s widening project.
