The following improvements planned under this project are aimed at reducing the flooding for 65 residences at risk in a 100-year storm event:

  • Stabilization of the creek banks in Randol Mill Park
  • Expansion of the drainage culvert under Randol Mill Road
  • Replacement of the drainage channel running through the neighborhood
  • Replacement of the bridges on Nueces Trail and Windsor Drive
  • Extensions of storm drains on Pecan Park Drive, Monticello Court, Del Mar Lane, Matthews Court
  • Renewals of water and sanitary sewer utilities on Monticello Court

Phase 1 will consist of the expansion of a drainage culvert under Randol Mill Road and stabilization of the creek banks in Randol Mill Park. Phase 2 improvements include the reconstruction and expansion of 2,800 linear feet of drainage channel and the construction of 780 linear feet of storm drains throughout the neighborhood generally bounded by Randol Mill Road to the north, Sanford Street to the south, Oakwood Lane to the west, and Fielder Road to the east.

The project also includes a third phase that will address storm drain improvements on Fielder Road between Division Street and Pecan Park Drive. This portion of the project has completed the design phase and will be bid for construction in a future capital year.
