UPDATE: ALL HIKE AND BIKE TRAILS CLOSED, CONSTRUCTION IN PROGRESS

Hike and Bike Trails Closed During Spring Gully Maintenance Project

Dear District Resident,

The Bilma Public Utility District (“District”) Board of Directors would like to provide an update of construction on the District’s hike and bike trails.

In June 2021, the Harris County Flood Control District (“HCFCD”) began a Major Maintenance project of the Spring Gully Tributary which runs parallel with the District’s hike and bike trails. There will be a heavy presence of construction crews and equipment until the project is complete.

For the safety of everyone, the entire length of the District hike and bike trails are closed to public access until construction is complete. Residents are asked to abide by posted notices in the area advising of the trail closure.

Project construction is expected to be complete along Spring Gully by early August, depending on weather conditions. Once HCFCD completes the repairs along Spring Gully, the District will then begin the process of replacing the removed portions of the hike and bike trails.

Please feel free to contact the District’s Board of Directors or attend a monthly meeting if you have any questions regarding this important project.

Hike and Bike Trails Closed Pending Spring Gully Maintenance Project

Dear District Resident,

The Harris County Flood Control District (“HCFCD”) will soon begin a Major Maintenance project of Cypress Creek and Tributaries including the Spring Gully Tributary which runs parallel with Bilma Public Utility District’s (“Bilma PUD”) hike and bike trails. For the safety of everyone, the entire length of the Bilma PUD hike and bike trails will be closed to public access during the project. In addition, access will be limited to the soccer field/park located at the corner of Winding Ridge Drive and TC Jester Blvd.

Improvements to be made by the HCFCD include repairing erosion and replacing failed storm sewer outfall pipes within Spring Gully. This will require the removal of several sections of the hike and bike trails. The Contractor for HCFCD is LECON, Inc.

Project construction is currently scheduled to commence in June 2021 and is expected to be complete along Spring Gully by early August, depending on weather conditions. Once HCFCD completes the repairs along Spring Gully, Bilma PUD will then begin the process of replacing the removed portions of the hike and bike trails.

The Bilma PUD Board of Directors (“Board”) understands the hike and bike trails are an integral part of the community and is hopeful all repairs will be completed prior to the 2021-2022 school year begins. The Board appreciates your cooperation in staying off all portions of the hike and bike trails during construction.

Please feel free to contact the District’s Board of Directors or attend a monthly meeting if you have any questions regarding this important project.
