Work has begun on a highly-anticipated project to relieve flooding issues on South Main Street and Texas Avenue.

On July 22 the South Main St. Drainage Improvements Project began active construction with a total roadway closure. This project consists of two phases to reduce and mitigate flooding by providing drainage improvements in the South Main St. corridor. Phase 1 addresses S. Main from West Texas Avenue to West Gulf Avenue. Phase 2 is a future phase to complete the project, south of West Gulf including detention and coordination with Harris County Flood Control related to drainage ditch work.
