Z100-00-00-X287 - Cypress Creek Watershed

Z100-00-00-X287 is a collection of major maintenance projects that will repair various types of channel failures along 4 different project areas within the Cypress Creek watershed. Portions of the identified channels are considered to be in serious failure and these repairs are necessary to prevent further impact to the channels.

Projects included as part of Z100-00-00-X287 are NOT classified as flood damage reduction projects; however, the channel may be widened in some locations in order to restore the channel conveyance capacity back to how the channel was originally designed.

Projects that fall under Z100-00-00-X287 include:

Cypress Creek Watershed Repairs

  • K133-00-00-X025 - consists of the removal and disposal of sediment granular fill and riprap installation, regrading of backslope swales, and pipe removal and replacement, beginning approximately 1,125 linear feet upstream of Spring Cypress Road and ending approximately 1,615 linear feet upstream of Spring Cypress
  • K133-00-00-X026 - consists of erosion repairs, pipe removal, and pipe replacement at locations approximately 1,935 linear feet and 2,115 linear feet downstream of Spring Cypress Road, and the reestablishment of the channel centerline and riprap installation approximately 2,500 linear feet downstream of Spring Cypress
  • K133-04-00-X003 - consists of erosion repairs, regrading of backslope swales, riprap installation at channel confluence, and pipe removal and replacement, beginning approximately 1,135 linear feet downstream of Spring Cypress Road and ending approximately 1,635 linear feet downstream of Spring Cypress
  • K149-00-00-X003 - consists of erosion repairs beginning approximately 130 linear feet downstream of Cypresswood Drive and ending approximately 495 linear feet downstream of Cypresswood Drive, on east channel

The total cost for these channel repairs is expected to be approximately $475,000 and will be funded using grants from the Natural Resources Conservation Service and Federal Emergency Management Agency. 

There will be heavy machinery near project sites and substantial vegetation removal operations may be needed in order to properly prepare the site for construction. For public safety reasons, trail users can expect intermittent closures as the projects progress. Please pay attention to posted signage in the project areas.

Construction has already begun at some of the project sites, but anticipated completion for all sites is Spring 2020 depending on weather.
