Eagle Drive Drainage Project

Project Status



Currently, crews are completing street and sidewalk asphalt paving as the final phase of construction. All underground drainage system improvements have been completed, including the installation of a French drain on Eagle Drive.

Project Background

The Eagle Drive Drainage Project Phase 2 includes constructing an underground drainage system that will replace the open channel to help reduce flooding south of downtown (once all phases of this project are completed). As part of the project, the City is reconstructing Eagle Drive (Carroll to Elm), which is why part of the roadway is currently closed. Construction on this project will continue this year, with a planned completion date of August 2019.

Project Updates

June 5: Due to weather delays, and groundwater issues uncovered during the underground phase of construction, the project completion date has been updated to August 2019.

Jagoe, a contractor for the City of Denton, has substantially completed all underground drainage improvements, including the installation of a French drain on Eagle Drive. Street pavement structure, sidewalk pavement, and cleanup are the remaining projects in the final scope of construction.
