Waketon Road Drainage Improvement Phase I

Description: The project consists of channel excavation from FM 2499 to Waketon Road and culvert replacement under Waketon Road to alleviate the recurring flooding and traffic disruption of Waketon Road, east of FM 2499. The project will be completed in two phases. Phase II provides for the channel excavation and phase II provides for culvert replacement. In 2017, a drainage study was completed which provided hydraulic modeling of existing conditions, analysis of alternatives and a final report.

Design was awarded January 7, 2019.  Design is ongoing. CIP budget revised/approved at the September 16 council meeting to include decision package funding. Staff met with HOA president in November. 60% plans received. A more defined ditch will be created to take the runoff to the culverts under Waketon.  Once complete, the results will help provide additional information on how best to handle flows in that area to minimize topping over the road and having to close it down in big storm events. Environmental assessment is complete. Staff is moving forward with the COE permit. 60% review meeting scheduled.

Project cost: $3,080,000
