Dear Pecan Grove Resident,
As part of our ongoing efforts to maintain the levee facilities in the community, Pecan Grove Municipal Utility District has awarded the contract for the Jones Creek Rehabilitation project to Texas Wall & Landscape (TWL). This project will repair the slope failures along Jones Creek behind the Pecan Lakes subdivision that were caused by Hurricane Harvey. The construction project involves removing the existing sheet piling and constructing a soldier pile wall with gabion basket slope protection. The gabion basket system is the preferred system for slope stabilization by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers due to their flexibility during the life of the project as well as their ability to allow saturated soils to more freely drain without impacting the structural stability of the overall system. The gabion system has successfully been used in similar areas along the Brazos River and Jones Creek. Please visit the Districts’ website for more information.
TWL will begin construction as early as the first week of October 2019. The construction project is expected to take 220 days, depending on weather and the conditions of the Brazos River. Due to the expedited construction schedule, TWL will be working seven (7) days a week from 7 a.m. until sunset. We are receiving federal funding for a significant portion of the design and construction and expedited construction is necessary to meet the federal funding requirements. We apologize in advance for the fact that the construction will be loud at times.
TWL will access the site from the north via F.M. 359 and from the east via a haul road from FM359, just north of the Pecan Grove Baptist Church. Please be mindful of the construction traffic in these areas.
During this time please remember this is a construction site and stay safe! Please keep out of the construction area and instruct children not to play in or around the construction site.
If you have any questions about the work, please contact the District office at 281-238-5000.
