Burleson St. Construction Notice September 15, 2014

Burleson St. Residents

Beginning Monday morning September 15th the City of Brenham Street Department will be reconstructing Burleson St. from the creek crossing to Benton Dr. Reconstruction will begin at 8:30 a.m. and last for approximately 2 weeks (Sept 15th-Sept 26th). During this time period and during the hours of 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. this section of roadway between Autumn Rain and Benton Dr. will be shut down and limited access will be allowed by vehicles throughout the work zones. City staff will try its best to get you access to your residence throughout this process.

This reconstruction process will involve tilling up the existing roadway, grading the sub-base and adding bulk cement to stabilize the sub-base. After cement is applied, a 2" asphalt layer will be added to the new road bed which will improve the surface of your street for many years to come. As with any construction project there will be times, especially as cement is added to the roadway that dusty conditions will be noticed. Please be patient with our crews and work zones. We are hoping that the full two weeks will not be needed.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call.

Emergency Communications - Codered April 03, 2013

Dear Brenham Resident:

As the Communication Director for our city, we have contracted with Codered to provide an Emergency Mass Notification System. During an emergency, utilizing Codered's system, we will be able to quickly send important information to our residents via email, text message and/or voice call.

CodeRED signup

Authorized staff members will collect and facilitate these messages. Codered already possesses a substantial database that contains some residential contact information. But, you may want to access the opt-in site via the link and review or supplement your contact information. There is no charge to you to participate. We hope that you will take time to participate in this program, so that we may better communicate with you during an emergency.

If you have signed up for Alerted in the past, your contact information is being transfered to Codered and you won't have to sign up a second time.

Thank you,

Stephen Draehn
