The Texas Department of Transportation will be closing a portion of University Drive - Raymond Stotzer Parkway for three days this week.

Starting at 9 a.m. today and continuing through Saturday, all lanes of University Drive/Raymond Stotzer Parkway will be closed in proximity to Harvey Mitchell Parkway.  Contractors will be busy restriping the road and adding new signage and temporary signals as construction continues on the diversion diamond interchange.

Access ramps leading up from Harvey Mitchell to University Drive will be closed during this time.  The ramp leading from Texas 47 onto University Drive will also be closed.  Additionally, the exit on Turkey Creek Road that leads to Easterwood Airport will be closed during this time.

Traffic on University Drive heading west will be forced to make a U-turn at Research Park.  Traffic on Raymond Stotzer Parkway heading east into town will be diverted to exit off at Turkey Creek Road.  Some detours will be provided for motorists at Texas 47 and Villa Maria Road in Bryan.

According to a TxDOT press release, the diamond should be completed before Texas A&M students return to campus for fall classes later this month.  

The full project is excepted to be completed by Spring 2019 at a cost of $14.1 million.
