CI-012 Major Maintenance of Cypress Creek and Tributaries 

Project Description

Bond Project CI-012 involves major maintenance along Cypress Creek and its tributaries to restore channel conveyance capacity. It may include right-of-way acquisition, design and construction along tributaries. Maintenance projects do not involve widening or deepening a channel. The goal is to repair and restore the channel to its original condition so that it can effectively convey stormwater.

Project STAGE

This major maintenance project is in the DESIGN STAGE. This stage of the project will result in engineering documents and a bid-ready project manual necessary to take the chosen project into the bidding process and to the CONSTRUCTION stage.
