Construction Begins October 23
On June 20, the FBCLID 7 Board of Directors awarded a $43,446,987 construction contract for the Brazos River Erosion Control Project to Texas Dewatering, LLC. The contractor will begin construction the week of October 23, 2023. The first step is construction of a temporary parking lot for the New Territory Dog Park. The temporary parking lot will be accessible from New Territory Blvd., and it will be located between the Dog Park and Anderson Park.
After the temporary Dog Park parking lot is complete, the current parking lot and entrance from New Territory Blvd. will be closed to the public for the remainder of the project. Texas Dewatering will construct an improved access ramp over the FBCLID 7 levee and for the next year it will serve as the main Brazos River construction entrance. Thousands of truckloads of excavated material must be hauled off from the banks of the Brazos River and thousands of truckloads of rock will be brought in to armor the new riverbank. Please remain aware of construction traffic when traveling on this segment of New Territory Blvd. Construction is currently scheduled to be complete in December 2024.
