The City of San Marcos Engineering and Capital Improvements Department is updating the scheduled roadway reopening for the CM Allen Parkway Project to mid-December. The completion of the roadway project on CM Allen Parkway between Hopkins Street and University Drive was extended past the previously estimated October opening due to new additions to the project as well as challenges with foundation moisture related to early Summer rain events.
“Construction on this deteriorating, 30-year-old roadway has been a complicated process but our crews have adapted and met each challenge safely,” said Director of Engineering and Capital Improvements Laurie Moyer. “Over the next month, we will be working hard to put some critical final touches on the green infrastructure features, concrete curbing and driveways, median work, and sidewalks.”
The new crosswalk at the corner of CM Allen and Hopkins St. is open now to pedestrians, and the City expects the entire project to be substantially complete in November for the start of the Sights and Sounds of Christmas event. While pedestrians will have access to CM Allen during the holiday event, the roadway will remain closed to vehicular traffic until afterwards.
