In preparing environmental assessments for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) at local, state, and federal levels, TLC conducts field studies and assessments, geographic information system (GIS) mapping, and data gathering.
Following Hurricane Ike in 2008, many communities began projects that would prevent or minimize and mitigate storm water inundation. The following projects are individual task orders that resulted from an indefinite delivery contract that TLC received through the Texas General Land Office.
TLC rehabilitated failed pavement sections at this site, including providing base reconstruction, installing hot mix asphaltic concrete surface, and applying chip seal. Proposed improvements will restore and ensure the function of the road for primary access and emergency vehicle use.
TLC provided services in three areas of Kleberg County, Texas: West Siesta Estates: TLC performed roadside ditch improvements, including re-grading and removal of debris from Ebanito Creek. East Siesta Estates: TLC cleaned and hauled debris from Jaboncillos Creek to allow for original flow of the creek, performed road and ditch excavation, and cut and replaced pavement. 772 Ranchettes: TLC performed roadside ditch improvements, including re-grading and removal of debris from Ebanito Creek.
TLC provided services in two cities in Harris County, Texas: City of Galena Park: TLC installed a generator with transfer switch pad and associated appurtenances at the City’s water plant. City of Seabrook: TLC performed ditch clearing, channel excavation, and widening, as well as placed fill material, provided slope stabilization, and installed concrete drainage structures along Pine Gully.
City of Sour Lake: TLC removed debris and material and re-established vegetation on approximately 2,050 feet of a drainage channel. Proposed improvements will increase the capacity of the city’s primary drainage channel and reduce flooding.
Two work orders were received from the City of Timpson. The first work order addressed a combination of issues where several severe storm events, poor drainage, prolonged storm water inundation, aging infrastructure, infrastructure that is no longer appropriate for demands, lack of regular maintenance, and topography had resulted in a stretch of roadway that was in critical need of rehabilitation. An additional concern was right-of-way encroachment. The project reconstructed the parts of the roa
The City of Galveston (COG) needed to have approximately 1.25 miles of Market Street reconstructed. This portion of the roadway had not experienced substantive upgrades since the City was raised, following the Hurricane of 1900. Problems with the existing facility included Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 non-conforming pedestrian conditions, particularly at intersections. The project involved reconstruction of the entire right-of-way, including enhancements to storm water drainage
