The city of Cibolo on Dec. 16 announced the completion of the first phase of the Town Creek Drainage Project.

According to Public Works Director Timothy Fousse, the second phase of the project is approximately 90% complete.

The purpose of the drainage projects along Town Creek is to lessen storm water runoff impacts of upstream developments by creating capacity to mitigate more frequent storm events, according to documents from the city.

As part of the project, Haeckerville Road will be reconstructed, which will not begin for a few more months, Fousse said.

The Town Creek drainage and Haeckerville Road reconstruction is funded through five accounts amounting to nearly $8.5 million, including remaining funds from the 2011 and 2013 general obligation Town Creek Drainage Bonds.

According to Fousse, the project is running about two to three weeks behind the originally anticipated completion date, which was set for fall 2023.
