Gessner from I10 to Long Point Construction:
The Gessner Rd. Drainage & Paving Project from I10 to Long Point is starting! This project is needed for drainage and mobility. Gessner often floods close to I10 during heavy rain events making it difficult to get out of neighborhoods or across the freeway to the hospital. This project will add extra in-line detention (drainage under the street) to help mitigate flooding.
Please follow all construction signs, and be aware that traffic will be impacted until this project is complete. Please give yourself extra time if you plan on traveling in this segment of Gessner.
Inwood Forest Golf Course Stormwater Detention Project:
On Wednesday, October 30, 2019, Council voted for the acceptance of grant funds from FEMA for the Inwood Forest Golf Course Detention Project. This will add approximately 1,000 acre feet of much needed detention.
The Inwood Forest Golf Course, a 226-acre property near Antoine Drive and West Little York, was purchased by the City of Houston for detention purposes in 2011. The stormwater detention basins will be built by the Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD), and the City of Houston is responsible for the construction of the recreational feature.

Thanksgiving Day Parade
Join the City of Houston for the Thanksgiving morning, November 28, 2019, at 9:00 a.m., for the H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Parade is located in downtown Houston and is FREE for all.
The Houston Thanksgiving Day Parade began in 1949, when Santa arrived at Union Station and rode his sleigh to the downtown Foley’s. Since then, the Thanksgiving Day parade has gone through a few changes but today, it remains a 70-year-old holiday tradition showcasing the Houston community and entertaining parade-goers lining the streets on Thanksgiving morning.
Join us again this year as we embrace the holiday spirit on Thursday, November 28, 2019 with the 70th Annual H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade.
