PROJECT DESCRIPTION

In July 2020, Harris County Flood Control District began construction on a project to improve channel conveyance and repair erosion along a Cypress Creek tributary formally identified as K163-00-00. The project will replace a portion of the existing earthen channel with 4,750 linear feet of boxed culverts, including inlets, junction boxes and tie-ins with subdivision outfalls. The project also includes the installation of approximately 1,200 linear feet of erosion control for the channel downstream near the confluence with Cypress Creek. Other construction activities include fencing to protect wetlands and removal of encroachments from public rights-of-way.

This project will address repetitive flooding in the area. Timberlake Estates subdivision experienced structural flooding of homes in April 2016, July 2012 and April 2009. Saracen Park also experienced structural flooding in July 2012, October 1994, October 1998 and November 1998. The project works in conjunction with the Harris County Engineering Department’s subdivision stormwater improvement projects to address repetitive flooding in the area, particularly within the neighborhood subdivisions.

Location

This channel runs north from Cypress North Houston Road, just east of Timberlake Drive, flowing into Cypress Creek just west of its confluence with Little Cypress Creek. The channel is bordered by the Ravensway, Saracen Park, and Timberlake Estates neighborhoods on the west, and by the Cypress Creek Estates neighborhood on the east.

Bond Project Listing

Bond Project F-23, which involves the construction of K163-00-00 channel improvements, is a “Local Only” bond project. This means there is no other funding partner at this time and total project costs would be paid with bond funding. Total allocation for this project is currently $3 million on the Bond Project 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 on 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.
