About. Piper Road was an area identified in the Harvey Drainage Assessment Report as a local drainage improvement project. The project will reconfigure the existing open drainage system along Piper Road from FM 518 to Fite Road. The project includes re-grading the ditches and resetting the culverts to move the high point of the road further north. This will allow for more of the drainage area to flow south to the linear detention pond just east of the elementary school at Fite Road and FM 1128. The goal of this project is to mitigate periodic flooding and high water issues along Piper by reviewing the drainage flows and re-grading the drainage ditches to flow south directly into Mary’s Creek.
Scope. This project will improve drainage along Piper Road from FM 518 to Fite Road by allowing more of the drainage area to flow south toward the linear detention pond. Project tasks include reviewing the exist open ditch drainage system on Piper Road, regrading ditches, resetting culverts toward higher points of the road, and laying asphalt to repair road damage likely to occur during the project.
This project is a part of the 2019 Bond referendum.
