Richmond Commission Awards $12 Million Construction Services Contract

(RICHMOND) - The Richmond Commission has awarded a Construction Services Contract for $12,188,413 to Hurtado Construction Company for the Clay St./ Second Street Drainage and Improvements Project.

This project includes drainage improvements in North Richmond and continuation of a hike and bike trail from Collins Road at Clay Street to Wessendorff Park via Second Street. This project follows the city’s master drainage plan for the north portion of Richmond and will divert storm water drainage from the Heights, Clay Street, and the new 10th Street re-alignment from flooding Wessendorff Park during high rain events by providing an alternate outfall to the Brazos River.

In addition to mitigating flood events, the project will address pedestrian safety for North side residents. The construction of underground storm sewer will allow for filling in the ditches along Clay Street, providing for the hike and bike trail continuation from Collins Rd./ George Park to Wessendorff Park following the City’s Trail Master Plan.

Funding for the Clay/ Second street project is a combination of Fort Bend County mobility bonds, private foundation grants and city funds. This project follows the Comprehensive Master Plan to rehabilitate and preserve existing neighborhoods and community assets.
