Mill Creek Website wrote:The Mill Creek Drainage Relief Tunnel is a construction project that will bring needed infrastructure improvement to east Dallas.
The tunnel, which stretches from the State-Thomas District in Uptown Dallas, through Mill Creek and Peaks Branch, will be constructed mostly underground with little impact to neighborhoods. Once complete, the approximately five mile-long tunnel will sit 70 to 100 feet below ground to provide flood relief.
Construction began in March 2018 and is slated for completion in 2023.

The tunnel will run for five miles. It will be 35 feet in diameter. It is being dug 120 feet below this city's surface.
