Construction will begin in early December on a year-long project to upgrade the storm drain system in the Allandale neighborhood. This project will reduce the flooding of houses, yards and streets caused by an overloaded storm drain system.  

Please come to the public meeting to meet the contractor, Texas Sterling, and to find out more about the construction:

6:30 p.m.
Monday, November 29
Yarborough Branch Library
2200 Hancock Road

Construction Work
Most of the work consists of installing pipes and culverts underneath streets, installing curbside inlets, constructing two storm drain outlets on Shoal Creek and moving existing utility lines to make room for the new pipes. Most of the work will take place on Bull Creek Road, White Horse Trail and Nasco Drive. 

In addition, the construction of one of the outlets will cause construction activity near Rickey, Carleen and Bullard Drives. (Additional work to install storm drain lines on these streets will be done later by Watershed Protection crews.)

Unfortunately, it is impossible to undertake this type of major construction project without disruption to the neighborhood. At a minimum, please expect lane and street closures, noise from construction equipment and trimming of trees overhanging the streets under construction.
