November 13, 2018 – Harris County Commissioners Court approved an $810,161 agreement with an engineering firm to conduct preliminary engineering support of this project


Design is now underway for this project, which involves approximately 3 miles of stormwater conveyance improvements and spot erosion repairs along Horsepen Bayou, HCFCD Unit B104-00-00, in the Armand Bayou watershed. The project will widen the channel from Bay Area Boulevard to Clear Lake City Boulevard and incorporate a maintenance access shelf below the top of bank – all within existing Flood Control District right-of-way.

Modifications to the Garden Creek Way bridge over Horsepen Bayou tributary B204-04-00 also are under design as part of this project, but may move on a separate project timeline from the channel modification portion of the project.

The Design stage is expected to be complete in late 2022.

Funding for Design and Construction comes from Bond ID CI-023 in the 2018 Bond Program.


The project involves a six-mile portion of Horsepen Bayou between Bay Area Boulevard and Ellington Field, in southeast Harris County.


Following a July 2020 Bond Program Community Engagement Meeting that took comments from the public, the Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) for this project was transmitted to Harris County Commissioners Court in April 2021. The project is now in the Design stage.

Bond Project Listing

Total allocation for this multi-stage project is currently $6 million on the Bond Project List. The project will be funded totally from the 2018 Bond Program as a “Local Only” project.

Bond List

List of 2018 Bond Projects

The Harris County Flood Control District has a significant number of flood damage reduction projects occurring all over Harris County as part of its on-going Capital Improvement Program (CIP), Operations and Maintenance, and the 2018 Bond Program. Click the Project ID on the Map to learn about projects’ details. Some early-stage projects are not highlighted in the map. The map will be updated when projects advance or when more information becomes available.

Project Lifecycle

Every flood damage reduction project is unique. Yet each project begins and ends, with common and predictable milestones along the way. Whether a project moves forward – and how quickly – depends on many factors, including the availability of funding at each milestone, shifting community priorities for flood damage reduction, and other changing circumstances (such as the price of trees or concrete) from year to year.
