On May 30th, the Texas Transportation Committee approved Brazos County’s request to create the Regional Mobility Authority (RMA). The RMA has proposed eight projects, the first of which is a tunnel under University Drive in College Station between Texas and Wellborn. Governor Abbott will name a chairman of the RMA and County Commissioners will appoint four members of the board. A RMA serves as a tool to help solve transportation problems by bringing new funding sources and new approaches for developing projects while providing local governments more control in transportation planning. Jones|Carter is proud to be able to help provide this tool for the county and play a role in its development.
