The banks of Buffalo Bayou in Terry Hershey Park in west Houston experienced severe erosion during the major floods of 2016, followed by a 3-month release of stormwater from the Addicks and Barker reservoirs. There are now over a dozen locations on the north side of Buffalo Bayou that are public safety hazards. The sites are spread out from Dairy Ashford Road to downstream of Wilcrest Road.
The planned emergency repair project, within Harris County Flood Control District right-of-way, is a cooperative effort between the Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD), the Harris County Engineering Department (HCED), and Harris County Precinct 3. HCFCD and HCED partnered on the design. HCFCD will reconstruct and stabilize the channel banks,and Harris County Precinct 3 will reconstruct and relocate park improvements, including trails.
