Drainage Progress Update

The crews resumed work on 1/3. They are expected to complete WP # 7 this week (weather permitting). That will leave a handful of sites in WP #10 and the Section 10 sites to wrap things up. We have not received a permit from the USACE for the Section 10 work. Therefore, that work may not happen before LGS wraps up the rest of the project.

Week Ending: 1/5/18

Areas Completed:

Work Package # 1 - Saunders Bayou from northern city limit south to Gentry Lane (private drive)

Work Package # 2 – Draughan Creek from southern city limit north to Greenwell Springs Road

Work Package # 3 – Beaver Bayou from southern city limit north to Wax Road

Work Package # 4 – Shoe Creek and un-named canals and drains from Bryce Canyon Drive north to Hooper Road

Work Package # 5 – Draughan Creek from Droze Road north to Fir Avenue and an un-named tributary starting at the intersection of Wax Road and Greenwell Springs Road north to Lawnside Avenue

Work Package # 6 - Beaver Bayou from Wax Road north to approximately 3,000 feet north of Hooper Road and an un-named canal/drain near Paint Avenue.

Work Package # 8 - Blackwater Bayou from North Old Settlement Road south to just east of the intersection of Blackwater Road and Comite Drive
