Bayou Brae Subdivision Drainage Improvements



Scope of Work 

This project will remove and replace existing storm sewer mains along Bayou Drive from approximately Viola Drive to Woodwind Way and along Woodwind Way from Bayou Drive. The existing storm sewer will be upsized to 30 inches or 36 inches of Reinforced Concrete Pipe (RCP). The existing inlets (8 total) will need to be investigated and modified as needed to allow for the full capture of road run-off during 1% exceedance events. The pavement along Bayou Drive and Woodwind Way, within the project limits, will need to be replaced as part of this project. Additionally, the scope will include the design and construction of 1% exceedance overflow swales for Bayou Drive and Brae Lane.

Subdivisions, Areas, or Streets Impacted

Bayou Drive, Woodwind Way, and Brae Lane

Project Status as of May 2023

The project staff selected and executed a professional service agreement with ARKK Engineers to prepare a preliminary technical report to identify the drainage improvements with estimated pipe sizes and associated paving reconstruction required to accomplish the drainage improvements. Budgetary cost estimates will also be provided. The proposed storm sewer trunk is to be constructed along Bayou Drive and Woodwind Way out falling into Robinson Bayou. Additionally, the City’s consultant will evaluate additional outfalls from Brae Lane directly into Robinson Bayou. The consultant was issued a Notice to Proceed (NTP) on July 25, 2022.  Based on calculations two potential outfall locations have been identified along with additional storm sewer modifications that will need to be designed at Bayou Brae Drive and Woodwind Way intersection. The consultant provided a draft technical memo in November 2022 which included construction cost estimates.
