After the jump, an update on the construction in downtown Richardson on the Floyd Branch of Cottonwood Creek.
According to the April 26, 2013, edition of "Week in Review":
Note that last sentence: "No existing open channels will be enclosed." My bad. I had assumed that it was the ditch along Texas Street that was being buried. Apparently not. I would have preferred something be done to restore the natural drainage (a la Los Angeles), but I'll accept the commitment not to enclose any existing open channels. Hold our ground.The project will improve drainage in the Floyd Branch Watershed, which collects drainage from 2.6 square miles in south central Richardson and eventually flows to White Rock Lake. The project will add capacity to the area's drainage system by adding new underground drainage pipes north and south of Main Street between US-75 and the DART rail line. No existing open channels will be enclosed.
