On Monday, December 11 heavy excavation for the construction of an underground drainage structure north of Beam Drive started.
Construction of a large underground drainage structure north of Beam Drive was included in the overall construction project to provide flood protection for the properties downstream of FM 1938. Unexpected site conditions and historic rain fall caused complications during and after the original installation of these facilities resulting in an extensive investigation. The findings led TxDOT to select a totally different product and type of construction for the replacement of these facilities.
Motorists should expect that storm drain construction will take place behind the existing barricades between Beam Drive and Randol Mill. No lane closures will be necessary; however, construction crews will need to periodically stop traffic to allow vehicles and equipment to enter the work area.
Thank you for your patience during this project. If you have any questions, please contact the Public Works Department at 817-748-8098.
