Before construction can begin, a drainage study will be conducted from Calhoun Road to Sims Bayou. This phase is expected to culminate during the summer of 2020.
This project is a partnership between the Harris County Flood Control District, Harris County Engineering Department, Harris County Precinct 1 and the City of Houston.
To reduce the risk to future flood damage, the recommended Salt Water Ditch improvements include the construction of an underground, enclosed storm sewer. A recreational trail will be constructed above the storm sewer for the community to enjoy and will feature various connections to different parts of the neighborhood.
