Bryan Public Works:

City wide bulk debris and brush pickup has been suspended for the week of May 29 through June 4th. Please do not place debris at the curb in areas other than Wheeler Ridge. This will allow city resources to concentrate on the storm damaged areas.

Bryan Public Works will continue bulk debris and brush pick-up in Wheeler Ridge throughout the week from 7am to 6pm. Bulk pick up will be conducted on a street by street basis that will rotate throughout the affected area daily. Street selection will be decided based upon need. No on-street parking will be allowed in the selected areas. Signage and barricades will be in place to aid in notifications. Street selections and dates of pick-up can also be found at


Tuesday, 05-31-2016 pickup will involve the following streets:

Meadowwood Dr.

Woodbriar Dr.

Woodcrest Dr.




BTU crews have completed restoration in the Wheeler Ridge subdivision to all homes that have been deemed safe to be restored. Homes that have not been reconnected are in need of work by a certified electrician prior to BTU re-connecting service. Once repair work is complete, customers can call BTU Dispatch at 979-822-3777 to arrange for reconnection.



Bryan Police Department:

Bryan PD continues to provide a heavy police presence in the storm damaged areas. Dedicated patrols will remain in place until further notice. If any citizen observes suspicious activity, please contact Bryan PD at 979-361-3888 (non-emergency) or 911 (emergency).


Bryan PD asks that citizens minimize the amount of vehicle traffic in the storm damaged area to allow residents, city crews and work crews to continue cleanup and repair efforts. Unnecessary vehicle traffic and on-street parking slows down recovery efforts.
