Street repair, flood protection and storm drainage are vital elements of City of Dallas 2017 Bond Program
Improving street conditions, flood protection and storm drainage are top priorities in the City of Dallas 2017 Bond Program.
The program calls for $5.5 billion to be spent on streets and transportation projects overall, and identifies an immediate need of $400 million to maintain streets and $500 million to improve current street conditions.
Critical needs in flood protection and storm drainage total $1.7 billion; $1.3 billion for pump stations; $299 million for storm drainage relief and $35 million for erosion control. These systems, as well as bridges, channels and levees will help prevent property and commercial losses and reduce flood insurance and other flood-related costs.
City staff is encouraging residents to let their voices be heard by participating in town hall meetings, responding to surveys and by voting in the upcoming bond election.
