F-22 Restore Channel Conveyance Capacity on Pillot Gully

Project Description

K140-00-00-X023 is a major maintenance project that will repair a structure failure and integrate environmental enhancements by way of natural stable channel design techniques to restore the channel conveyance capacity of K140-00-00 between Vintage Preserve Parkway and Cypress Creek.

K140-00-00-X023 is not a flood damage reduction project; however, the channel will be widened in some locations and look significantly different once complete due to the anticipated environmental enhancements. The plans call for natural stable channel design features such as:

  • Constructed Boulder Riffles
  • Natural Sill Logs (to help stabilize the banks)
  • Toewood (to help prevent erosion)
  • Live stakes and planting of native vegetation

Portions of the channel are considered to be in serious failure and these repairs are necessary to prevent further impact to the channel and surrounding trail system. On-site sourced wood is expected to be used for channel stability and the Flood Control District is committed to minimize impacts to the trees and vegetation in the area.

For public safety reasons, Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve Park users can expect intermittent trail closures as the project progresses. Construction is expected to begin Fall 2019.  Additionally, portions of the foot paths along Pillot Gully and Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve Park may be closed due to construction activities and to help protect project staging areas. 

The project contractor will be accessing this project from Vintage Preserve Parkway and the anticipated traffic control plan may result in impacts to traffic around the Vintage Preserve Parkway bridge over Pillot Gully for the duration of this project. 

Project Stage

This project is currently 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.
