District 6 Councilman Ray Lopez, City officials and area neighbors celebrated the start of construction that will improve drainage in a flood prone area. The Westwood Village Drainage Phase II project will create a detention basin west of Pinn Road adjacent to Westwood Village Creek and should be complete in the fall of 2014.
“This project is a priority for the City and is a long-awaited project for the residents and business owners of the Westwood Village area,” said Councilman Lopez. “We have already improved the drainage situation in this area and this second phase of the project will allow us to make even more improvements.”
This project is a continuation of the Westwood Village Drainage Phase I project that was funded out of the 2007 Bond. That project improved the existing box culvert system and drainage channel to increase their capacity.
“We knew it was a priority to include the second phase of the Westwood Village Drainage project in the 2012 Bond,” said Mike Frisbie, City Engineer and Director of Transportation & Capital Improvements. “We are committed to completing this voter-approved project on time and on budget.”
The project is managed by the Transportation & Capital Improvements Department and is funded with $5 million from the 2012-2017 Bond Program. The design by Cude Engineers will be constructed by Alamo City Constructors.
