Tuesday morning, motorists on Highway 105 west of Navasota will driving on new bridges over the Brazos and Navasota Rivers.
“There will be a lot of confusion out there, so we ask everyone out there to slow down and please be patient with us,” said Bob Colwell from the TXDOT Bryan District Office.
He says, however, FM 159 will be closed at the 105 intersection for four weeks to tie in to the new highway. And the old 105 bridges will be demolished.
“We said the whole project will be complete by Spring of next year, that is part of the work that will be done, but it will not effect traffic,” said Colwell.
What began as a 23 million dollar project seven years ago grew to more than 33 million. After record rainfall in 2016 and Hurricane Harvey in 2017, the bridges were redesigned.
