Bids for a road resurfacing project in Brenham will be considered by the Brenham City Council on Thursday.

Councilmembers will look to accept a bid from Clark Construction of Texas for Onyx Resurfacing on six street sections.  With the Onyx Resurfacing project, Clark Construction will perform spot repairs on sections that are not structurally sound, and the city’s street department will level up the low areas or utility cuts.  Two coats of aggregate material will be applied with oil to seal the roadway off.

The city says this is the medium level of protection after crack sealing that was recommended in the street inventory that was conducted in 2020.

The streets to be addressed by the project are Spinn Street, Tison Street, LJ Street, Hillside Drive, Clearspring Drive and Robinhood Road.

The bid comes to $305,809; however, a change order with a reduction from eight to six street sections will make the total project cost $230,263.  The two streets that are being postponed are Pecan Street and Atlow Drive.

In other action, the council will take up an ordinance to regulate the speed of traffic on Aviation Way, a private road within the Brenham Municipal Airport.  The item comes after staff recently received a complaint about the high rate of speed that traffic is driving on the road.

The ordinance would establish a 30-mph speed limit on Aviation Way, authorize the ability to place speed limit signs, and create a penalty for violating the speed limit.

Also on Thursday, the council will:

  • Consider a Chapter 380 agreement between the city and Brenham Market Square, LP. The terms of the Chapter 380 agreement are the same as those laid out in the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) approved by the council on March 17th, with the exception that the first year of the agreement be 2024 rather than 2023.  The developers have requested the date change due to post-pandemic supply chain issues that have impacted the development.
  • Meet in executive session to discuss the possible sale, exchange, transfer and/or acquisition of real property located in the Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone #1. The council will reopen regular session to take action on the item.

The council will meet Thursday at 1 p.m. at Brenham City Hall.

  1. For the sake of the taxpayers, I sure do hope that when the City does endeavor to do this contemplated resurfacing project that they do their best to assess the area prior to the project. I’d hate to see them go in and dig up the street right after it is finished like they did on Austin Street. It was paved and then dug up and patched back together. I wonder how much that cost us.
