Next week, residents and park patrons will see construction along the San Marcos River and below the Cheatham Street bridge as Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) contractors begin excavation to construct a below-grade crossing at Cheatham Street for a portion of the new ADA-compliant bicycle and pedestrian trail.
The below-grade crossing feature will provide enhanced safety measures and connectivity between Rio Vista Park, William & Eleanor Crook Park, and Ramon Lucio Park.
TxDOT and the City of San Marcos have worked closely with environmental engineers during preconstruction planning to ensure that mitigation measures are implemented to protect the San Marcos River.
Project completion is anticipated in early summer 2020, weather permitting. For media inquiries, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
