West of T.C. Jester Boulevard (K500-23-00-E001)


Starting November 2020, the property west of T.C. Jester is under an excavation and removal (E&R) contract. Under an E&R contract, a contractor can remove up to a certain amount of soil and other materials which can help to expedite the construction of the stormwater detention basin in the future and reduce costs.. The E&R contract lasts up to three years, and the construction area will be closed to the public for the duration of the contract for the safety of residents and construction crews.

It is anticipated that the project will move into the Design stage in 2023.

The construction of the largest of the three basins and the west side basin is expected to be funded by $12 million in state community directed funding from Representative Sam Harless and CDBG-MIT funding.
