BEXAR COUNTY, Texas – Construction is underway on the Medio Creek flood-control project.

The $3.6 million project will increase the capacity of Medio Creek, remove 23 homes from the hundred-year flood plain and make streets safer by providing non-flooded access to nearby neighborhoods during major rain events.

Improvements will also be made under the Ellison Road Bridge so that more water can flow underneath.

The Medio Creek project is expected to be complete by early 2018. It was funded through the county flood-control program, which is a 10-year capital-improvement program that launched in 2007.
