Construction Advisory: Keegans Bayou Maintenance Project
Project ID: D118-00-00-X009
In an effort to keep you informed about the Harris County Flood Control District’s continuing improvements in the Brays Bayou watershed, we want to notify you of an upcoming project in your area.
In fall 2022, the Flood Control District will begin construction of a maintenance project along an approximate 2-mile stretch of Keegans Bayou from Kirkwood Drive to US 59. The project will address the channel conveyance capacity issues and restore the channel back to its original design capacity. The project is expected to remove approximately 50,000 cubic yards of sediment from the channel.
The contractor will use heavy construction equipment such as dump trucks, excavators and bulldozers. Motorists are urged to be alert to truck traffic when passing near construction access points and along truck routes. For safety reasons, hike and bike trail closures are also expected along Keegans Bayou from Kirkwood Drive to US 59 for the duration of the project.
The Flood Control District appreciates your patience through the duration of this project. More information about the Flood Control District’s maintenance projects can be found at hcfcd.org/maintenance. Should you have any questions or comments, please visit hcfcd.org/contact-us.
