Range Wood Drive Drainage Study

Description: The project includes evaluating the existing hydrologic and hydraulic conditions for the existing 66-inch pipe that is located from Timber Creek to Range Wood Drive and Kings Road. In addition, the project will include evaluating up to three alternatives to mitigate for flooding within the area. 

A professional services agreement with Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc., for the drainage evaluation was approved July 20.  
Study is complete. Virtual neighborhood meeting held December 17. Staff is looking at funding options to implement study results.

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. 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. Meeting with residents held August 26, 2020. A design amendment was approved at the December 7 council meeting.

Project cost: $3,080,000
