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.
