Design Process

The City of San Marcos is in the design process to reconstruct Hopkins Street between Moore and Bishop Streets, and to identify ways to improve drainage in the neighborhood.

Approach

A "Complete Street" approach will be used in the design of Hopkins Street, with considerations to:

  • Existing heritage trees
  • Pedestrian and bicycle traffic
  • Streetscape and gateway elements to enhance the historic neighborhood
  • Traffic calming
  • Utility considerations

Drainage

Drainage in the neighborhood will be analyzed to determine needed upgrades in the system.
