Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) DR-4223 & DR4245 Drainage Projects

El Rancho Santa Cruz Subdivision Drainage Improvements (DR-4223-017)
This project proposes to mitigate flooding by constructing an overflow basin to provide additional capacity for the El Rancho Santa Cruz Drainage Ditch. The proposed basin will be built south of El Rancho Road within a vacant 14-acre tract of land owned by the City of McAllen. The project also consists of the installation of approximately 125-linear feet of reinforced concrete pipe to connect the basin to the existing storm sewer system.

Schedule:
Design Complete:    Early Spring 2018 
Bid/Award:                Late Spring 2018
Construction:            Summer 2018 
Progress:
Finalizing design. Preparing construction documents for bid.

Schedule:
Design Complete:    Early Summer 2018
Bid/Award:                Late Summer 2018
Construction:            Fall 2018
Progress:  Field surveying complete. Geotechnical field investigation being scheduled. Design in progress.


Westway Heights Drainage Improvements (DR-4223-016)
This project consists of the installation of approximately 7,000-linear feet of storm drain pipe within Westway Heights Subdivision. The proposed system will then connect to a proposed reinforced concrete box culvert that outfalls to the proposed storm water detention facility.

Schedule:
Design Complete:    Late Spring 2018
Bid/Award:                Summer 2018
Construction:            Fall 2018
Progress: All field survey and geotechnical investigations complete. Design in progress.
