Hopkins Street - Bishop to Moore Improvements

Project Update - June 2020

  • Construction is underway on Phase 1 (Scott St to Johnson Ave).
  • Tree protection and erosion controls are in place and crews are beginning with installation of storm sewer infrastructure.
  • Hopkins through traffic is detoured to Craddock.
  • Additional signage has been added on Belvin and San Antonio Streets in an effort to reduce cut-through traffic.
  • Proposed improvements can be found here

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.

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.


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