PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This project aims to reduce the risk of flooding along the Halls Bayou main stem by making improvements to the main stem in the vicinity where Halls Bayou intersects with Interstate 45. The Flood Control District is working in collaboration with the Texas Department of Transportation to mitigate any potential impacts from future infrastructure improvement projects.

As part of the preliminary engineering stage, the Flood Control District is evaluating various alternatives, including channel conveyance improvements and stormwater detention basins.

Phase 1 of this project, Bond Project C-25, will make channel conveyance improvements to Tributary P118-21-00 and a stormwater detention basin that will be incorporated into this project.

All projects included within C-41 will make improvements to the main stem of Halls Bayou.

This project is part the Watershed-Wide Project Implementation Program for Halls Bayou.
