This week, Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush announced the Texas General Land Office (GLO) approved $1,848,750 in Hurricane Harvey disaster recovery grants for the City of Huntsville to make flood, drainage, and street improvements.
With these funds, the City of Huntsville will excavate, clear, and grub existing drainage channels off West Greenbriar Drive and River Oaks Drive. These channels will receive erosion control measures, reinforced concrete box culverts, headwalls, wing walls and concrete aprons, and sodding at channel banks and bench areas.
Additionally, the city will remove existing pavement and storm structures and install new roadways and storm sewer inlets at the following locations:
- West Greenbriar Drive – from Freemont Drive to approximately 400 linear feet east along West Greenbriar Drive
- River Oaks Drive at Greenbriar Drive – approximately 200 linear feet southeast along River Oaks Drive
- River Oaks Drive at East Lake Drive – approximately 200 linear feet northwest along River Oaks Drive
