Project Status as of May 2022

In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey flooding, a Hydrologic and Hydraulic Study was conducted of areas within the Magnolia Bayou and Borden’s Gully Watersheds. The project was advertised for bid on October 5, 2021, and the bid opening was on October 26, 2021. While numerous general contractors downloaded the bid documents, no bids were received. Discussions with these plan holders revealed the lack of response was due to the contractors being too busy to prepare bid proposals. The project was re-advertised for bid on January 18, 2022. The bid opening was on February 15, 2022, and three proposals were received. The construction contract was approved.
