Recent Action

September 24, 2019 – Harris County Commissioners Court authorized and initiated this project

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The goal of this project is to reduce flooding risks by improving the capacity of Halls Bayou Tributary P118-08-00 to convey stormwater during rain events. The project may include right-of-way acquisition, design and construction along the Tributary.

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

Location

This project will be located along P-118-08-00, located south of Tidwell Road. The exact location is yet to be determined.

Stage

This project is currently in the ALTERNATIVES ANALYSIS stage. This stage of the project will result in a preliminary engineering report (PER) with a recommended project that can be taken to Harris County Commissioners Court for approval and then advanced to the DESIGN stage. The PER may identify needed right-of-way acquisition, utility relocation and a preliminary cost estimate.

Bond Project Listing

Bond Project C-23 is a potential “Partnership” project. The Flood Control District has applied for funding through the Texas Water Development Board’s Flood Infrastructure Fund and is considering additional grant options. Total allocation for this project is currently $25 million on the Bond Project List, of which approximately $22.5 million would be partnership funding, if granted, and $2.5 million would be local costs.
