Town Creek Donut Drop! 

Detours, delays, and donuts – oh, my! Projects around 7th and 10th Streets, including the Town Creek Drainage Project, will necessitate taking a little more time and perhaps some different routes around the area. City Staff made things a little sweeter near Sam Houston Elementary, with the City’s first Donut Drop – take a look!

Donut be sad if you missed this drop! There will be more along the construction routes. Thank you for your patience during construction!
