In December 2015, during the heavy rain storms, a section of Holcomb Blvd near Redland Road experienced a small localized landslide, impacting the ability for vehicles to travel safely on Holcomb Blvd. At that time, City crews completed a quick clean-up and emergency repair of the area in order to open the roadway. With the disaster declaration from FEMA, City staff is moving forward with a permanent repair of this area.

Status Updates

December 20, 2016:  Permanent upslope slide repair is not a FEMA reimbursable expense so the City is looking for other funding mechanisms.  

July 15, 2016:  Because the City anticipates using FEMA funding to effect the permanent repair of this slide, staff awaited word on whether or not the City had to use a FEMA authorized engineering consultant to perform the work or if the City could contract with one of its on-call consultants.  

We have been notified that the City can contract with one of our on-call consultants so a firm has been contacted in order to obtain a scope of work and schedule.
