The Bexar County Flood Control Program is a 10-year, $500 million capital improvement program that was established by the Bexar County Commissioners Court in 2007. The program is designed to address flooding from a regional perspective, rather than by political or jurisdictional boundaries and is the result of a partnership between Bexar County, the San Antonio River Authority, the City of San Antonio and 20 suburban cities, known as the Bexar Regional Watershed Management.
Foster CM Group currently holds a contract with Bexar County to provide Construction Management and Inspections services for various Flood Control projects. To date, our staff has provided professional services on:
- Ingram Road Bridge/Low Water Crossing #58 ($7.4 million): consisted of a 1,716-ft (long) bridge along Ingram Road across both Leon Creek and Huebner Creek between Northwestern and Potranco, providing unflooded access during a 1% annual chance (100-year) storm event. The project included coordination with the CoSA Parks Departments’ Linear Creekway Project and the Huebner Creek Enhanced Conveyance Project (LC‐17) and will enhance connectivity to the proposed Leon Creek Greenway Hike & Bike trail. The project included the installation of 2,433 feet of water lines and 1,238 feet of sanitary sewer lines.
- Roland Avenue Bridge/Low Water Crossing ($5.6 million): consisted of replacing two existing low water crossings with bridges along Roland Avenue to provide unflooded access during a 1% annual chance (100-year) storm event. Roland Avenue was also re‐aligned to remove the sharp curves in this area and improve driver safety. The project included the construction of new hike and bike trails and ties into the South Salado Creek Greenway Project.
- Rock Creek Natural Waterway Conveyance/Outfall ($1.8 million): consisted of improving drainage conditions of Rock Creek between IH-10 and Callaghan Road and is intended to stabilize the existing channel side slopes in order to prevent further erosion.
- Knoll Creek Low Water Crossing ($5.4 million): consists of providing structural improvements to the existing low water crossings located on Classen Road and Jung Road to provide unflooded access to the area during the 1% (100-year) storm event. Channel improvements are being made to Knoll Creek at the current low water crossings to accommodate the proposed structures. An interceptor drainage swale will be constructed parallel to Briarcrest to eliminate the flooding on the roadway.
- Prue Road at French Creek ($4.4 million): consists of the replacement of an existing low water crossing along Prue Road with a span bridge between Old Prue Road and Wilson Oaks. The bridge will provide an unflooded vehicular travel route for citizens and emergency responders during a 1% annual chance (100-year) storm event. Associated project features include channel improvements, additional travel lanes, and utility adjustments. The span bridge will be constructed wide enough to accommodate up to five vehicular travel lanes in the future.
