Armand Bayou Stormwater Conveyance Improvements

The Harris County Flood Control District is working with the Harris County Toll Road Authority to widen and deepen a segment of Armand Bayou from Sam Houston Tollway East to Spencer Highway in connection with a HCTRA project to expand the toll road. Channel improvements along this 2,300-foot section of Armand Bayou will mitigate for increased stormwater flows as a result of the road project.

HCTRA will fund the channel project, which will be managed by the Flood Control District. IDS Engineering Group Inc. is working with the Flood Control District as project design engineer. IDS has conducted field surveys and geotechnical and environmental investigations in the project area. The project is in the DESIGN stage. Property acquisition is underway.
