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 1 provides for the channel excavation and Phase 2 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.

Survey is released to begin exhibits for easements and ROW. Once the ROW and easement are acquired, Town staff will build the berm.  The channel and culvert work will be done by a contractor with design and COE permitting occurring in FY18/19 and construction planned for FY19/20. Design was awarded January 7, 2019.  Design is ongoing. Staff met with COE early March. CIP budget revised/approved at the September 16 council meeting to include decision package funding. ROW and easement agreement is on the October 7 council meeting for approval.
