KLEBERG COUNTY COASTAL IMPACT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM PROJECTS
Funded by the Coastal Impact Assistance Program, this project included five construction contracts for various drainage, dam, and shoreline stabilization repairs within Kleberg County. A new storm sewer system was constructed for Kings Inn Road to alleviate storm run-off from the roadside ditches.
DUVAL COUNTY CDBG WATERLINE AND SEWER LINE PROJECT FREER & SAN DIEGO, TEXAS
This project was funded by the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Community Development Block Grant program and involved installing new water lines in San Diego, Texas, and the installation of a new sanitary sewer system along Magnolia Rd. in Freer, Texas.
KLEBERG COUNTY DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS TEXAS GLO DISASTER RECOVERY
This project was funded by the Texas General Land Office to provide rural Kleberg County residents with much needed improvements to their flood and drainage system in the aftermath of Hurricanes Dolly and Ike.
Elsa State Bank contracted SAMES, Inc. for the design and construction of their new 7,000 SF admin building/lease space. The design services included architectural renderings, coordination of the structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing specifications, civil engineering design for site improvements, drainage, detention, water and sewer utilities, and ADA compliance inspection.
KLEBERG COUNTY COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT PROGRAM WATER & SEWER IMPROVEMENTS
This project consisted of water and sewer improvements in Riviera and Ricardo, Texas. Project scope included the design of a 6-inch distribution main at approximately 9,400 linear feet that provided 15 new water service connections and 5 fire hydrants to the residents of Riviera.
TEXAS GLO FLOOD AND DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT HIDALGO COUNTY, TEXAS
This project is the result of significant flooding that occurred within the identified communities due to a topographic high point elevation located north of the communities and a naturally occurring low point within the community.
TEXAS GLO FLOOD AND DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT ESCOBARES, TEXAS
This ongoing project is the result of significant flooding in the southern portion of the City of Escobares caused by the large volume of rainfall generated by Hurricane Dolly in July 2008. The new storm drain network, consisting of over 10,700 linear feet of 18-inch reinforced concrete pipe (RCP), 24-inch RCP, 30-inch RCP, 36-inch RCP, and numerous catch basins, will relieve the aging and inadequate storm drainage infrastructure currently in place.
This multi-phase project involved the design of a new two-lane roadway including curb and gutters that replaced a gravel road. The project also included the design of a storm drain facility and of several utilities that required adjustment. AASHTO guidelines for vertical curves were also followed in the design process due to the steep terrain in this region of Starr County.
