Area Wide Protective provided a recent installation of a new land mark for the Texas A&M University System – and this one really hit home with AWP’s Bryan, Texas office.

Our AWP team strategically laid rumble strips along George Bush Drive in College Station, Texas. The strips are spaced so motorists traveling between 35-40 mph will hear a rendition of the Aggie War Hymn. The novelty of the project is also intended to improve safety. The rumble strips, located on the stretch of road between the intersections of Penberthy Boulevard and Harvey Mitchell Parkway, are intended to encourage drivers to slow down as they are approaching the light at Penberthy and accelerate at a slower pace once they have passed through it.

“We have had nothing but praise with this project from TxDOT, City of College Station, and Texas A&M University staff, current students, and alumni,” said AWP’s Jake Mullins. “I want to personally praise our operations staff and striping crew for their attention to detail and how they went about completing this project. It’s a unique project that we thoroughly enjoyed being part of.”

A&M officials are considering other locations where the feature can be installed, and AWP is honored to add its support to future efforts.
