The 2019 Pearland bond funded drainage improvements in the city. Here is an update on the bond-funded drainage projects.

Mimosa Acres subdivision

This project went to bid in June and will minimize flood damage in the Mimosa Acres subdivision by removing and replacing driveways, adding driveway culverts and a storm sewer system, and regrading ditches. Construction is scheduled to run until March 2021 and will cost $1.3 million.

Piper Road

This project is set to go to bid in October. It will mitigate high water along Piper Road. The project includes regrading ditches from Broadway Street to Fite Road. Construction is scheduled to start in January 2021 and end in October 2021. The project is expected to cost $800,000.


West Lea subdivision

The project timeline has been pushed back as the city continues to hear resident concerns. The project includes removal and replacement of driveway culverts and widening in the West Lea subdivision and regrading bar ditches to increase the rate water moves through the drainage system. Construction is expected to start in June 2021 and cost $3.6 million.

Willowcrest subdivision

This project is set to go to bid in October. Willowcrest experiences repetitive flood loss due to undersized storm sewer inlets. Construction is expected to start in January 2021 and end in March 2023. The project is expected to cost $11.8 million.
