2050 Major Thoroughfares Concept
We are planning to have at least one more public meeting regarding the 2050 Major Thoroughfares Concept. At this time we are working with our partners to address and accomodate all public concerns to the fullest possible extent. The next meeting will not be scheduled until mid-April at the earliest, however we will most likely target an early May meeting to allow us to address all public concerns in the next draft. Please continue to monitor this website for additional updates.
The Bryan/College Station Metropolitan Planning Organization (BCSMPO) invites the public to review and comment on the revised Public Engagement Plan 2017. The Public Engagement Plan is the guiding document for the BCSMPO to actively encourage stakeholder input into the transportation planning process for Brazos County. It is also used to specify the type and length of public comment for all plans, documents and studies prepared by or on behalf of the MPO. The 45-day public review and comment period begins on Monday March 13, 2017 and ends on Wednesday, April 26, 2017.
Copies of the Public Engagement Plan will be available for review online at www.bcsmpo.org and at the BSCMPO office located at 3833 S. Texas Avenue, Suite 290, Bryan, TX. Comments from the public will be reviewed before the BCSMPO Policy Committee considers the document for adoption.

Major Thoroughfare Concept
The Bryan/College Station MPO presented a revised Draft 2050 Major Thoroughfare Concepts Map on March 6, 2017 at the Brazos Center. (See the attached links below). The MPO will review public comments received at that meeting and any comments submitted via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 17th to determine if further revisions are necessary. If further revisions are made, a public meeting would be held in mid-April to provide the public an opportunity to comment. While we will make every effort to work with local media outlets to publicize this meeting, please check back on this website March 30 for meeting location and time. If no revisions are deemed necessary, the Concept will be advanced to the MPO Policy Board for approval at the regularly scheduled meeting on April 5, 2017 at 9:00 AM at the Brazos County Administration Building in the Commissioner’s Court.
Thanks to everyone for making comments so that the concept could be refined to meet the needs of our community.
In the coming months, BCSMPO Staff is conducting a series of Public meetings regarding our 2050 Major Thoroughfares Concept (2050 MTC).
The Major Thoroughfares Concept is a guide for developing an efficient and effective roadway network for a point in time in the future. In this case, 2050 and beyond. The intent of these meetings is to begin the discussion with citizens and business owners on where we need roadways to accommodate growth. The 2050 MTC is a result of the combined efforts by representatives from the City of Bryan, the City of College Station, Brazos County, and Texas A&M University. These representatives examined growth trends to determine where roads should be placed and what kind of vehicle capacity would be needed to ensure the efficient and effective movement of people and goods. However, the 2050 MTC is not set in stone and BCSMPO requires public input before moving forward.
