Cole Creek originates in the general vicinity of the intersection of Highway 12 and Highway 62. Cole Creek flows generally in a southern direction until it reaches and crosses underneath Interstate 10. Then, it flows southward until the Creek converges with Cow Bayou. Drainage within Cole Creek is impacted by the condition of Cow Bayou, including tidal influences.
The District began the Cole Creek project during the week of May 11, 2020, and completed the improvement project from the railroad tracks just north of Cow Bayou, to Interstate 10 in January of 2021. The Cole Creek project will transition to the north side of Interstate 10 and be referred to on the website as Cole Creek Project Phase 2.
