Location

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

Stage

This project is currently in the PRELIMINARY ENGINEERING stage. This stage of the project will involve the analysis of the hydrology and channel hydraulics in the study area and will result in a Preliminary Engineering Report with a recommended project that can be taken to Harris County Commissioners Court for approval and then advanced to the DESIGN stage. The PER will identify needed right-of-way acquisition, utility relocation, and a preliminary cost estimate.

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.

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.

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.
