Saint Christopher Avenue Reconstruction (RE1702D) - In Construction
This project is to design and construct improvements to St. Christopher Avenue and includes replacing the existing asphalt roadway with a concrete curb and gutter roadway. It also includes drainage improvements; specifically it replaces the current open ditches with underground culverts and conveys storm water across FM270 at Abilene Street. These enhancements will facilitate a more efficient drainage into Robinson Bayou.
The projects scheduled completion is December 2018, it is currently on schedule.
Genco Canal Vegetation Management (DR1302) - In Construction
This is a short and simple project designed to mitigate the floating vegetation in Genco Canal. Due to high nutrients and carbon dioxide levels in the canal, invasive floating vegetation is allowed to grow prolifically. Contractors are working to kill the existing vegetation and install solar powered, subsurface, air pumps that will increase oxygen levels in the water, which will in turn inhibit new vegetation growth.
The projects scheduled completion is the end of May 2018.
Clear Creek Village Lift Station Relocation (WW1706) - In Construction
This lift station is being relocated due to an interference with TxDOT widening IH-45.
The projects scheduled completion is September 2018.
Butler Longhorn Museum Interior & Exterior Renovation (RE1701) - In Construction
This project is in place in order to restore both interior and exterior elements of the museum. The siding was replaced to repair a long list of leaking areas and the interior is being repaired post Harvey.
