Flooding issues in District 14 addressed

Today, the City Council approved the design and construction of paving and storm drainage improvements at two key locations in District 14 that were flooded in March: Inwood at University and Gaston at Munger. This $187,500 investment will help prevent future flooding problems in these areas.

On the upcoming bond, the following projects affecting flood control affecting District 14 have been proposed: Mill Creek in East Dallas, Bachman Branch in West Dallas, McKinney Avenue in Uptown, and Mercedes at Worcola in East Dallas, totaling $5.2M.

In addition, there are improvements to the pressure sewers in the levee drainage system to extend the pressure sewers for Turtle Creek, Woodall Rogers, Dallas Branch, and Bellview at a cost of $14.7M. This will alleviate flooding in Uptown, Downtown, Victory, and other nearby areas.
