The Hopkins Street Improvements from Bishop to Moore Streets will replace existing water and wastewater infrastructure, add a drainage system to improve storm water runoff, and reconstruct the street with curbs and sidewalks.
The City of San Marcos designed the reconstruction of Hopkins Street between Moore and Bishop Streets, and identified ways to improve drainage in the neighborhood.
A "Complete Street" approach is being 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
Drainage in the neighborhood was analyzed to determine needed upgrades in the system.
