The next obstacle for motorists in the construction zone on Harvey Mitchell Parkway in College Station begins Monday evening. TxDOT Bryan’s district office says the gates will be on Harvey Mitchell near the Raymond Stotzer exit. There will be one-lane traffic on Harvey Mitchell through the interchange for the next year and a half as part of the $ 48 million project.
And part of the OSR highway is closed all week. TxDOT Bryan’s district office said the replacement of a culvert at Parker Branch means the OSR is closed between FM 46 and FM 1940.

Starting Monday, July 12, 2021 at 7:30 p.m., TxDOT’s contractor, Knife River Corporation, will place a barrier and new FM 2818 tape near the FM 60 intersection (Raymond Stotzer Parkway). This work will reconfigure traffic on the FM 2818 to one lane in each direction between the entry and exit ramps of the FM 60.
This reconfiguration will allow the construction of the north side of FM 2818 and will last until spring 2022, when the tracks will be moved to the other side while the southbound tracks are built and these will be completed in the fall. / winter 2022.
This operation is part of the larger TxDOT FM 2818 project north of FM 60 (Raymond Stotzer Parkway) to FM 2154 (Wellborn Road), a length of 3.2 miles, at a total cost of $ 47.6 million.
The goal of this project is to improve safety, increase capacity and reduce congestion along FM 2818 (Harvey Mitchell Parkway) by converting the corridor to a “Super Street” design.
