In 2014 the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) awarded the City of San Marcos $2,000,000 in federal funding through the Surface Transportation Program for the Hopkins Street Multi-Use Bike and Pedestrian Project.
The project extends along Hopkins Street from CM Allen Parkway to Thorpe Lane. The planned improvements include:
Replacing the existing smaller sidewalk with a 10-foot wide multi-use path from CM Allen Parkway to Thorpe Lane;
Installing a Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) crosswalk across Hopkins Street from City Hall to the Public Library;
Installing a PHB crosswalk across Hopkins Street at Riverside Drive; and
Adding a turn lane on Charles Austin at Hopkins Street and improving the traffic signal phasing plan.
Construction for the $1,483,000 project will be completed by Montoya Anderson Construction, Inc. Funding for the project is provided partially through $2,000,000 in federal funding from the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) with the City contributing $250,000 toward project costs. Construction is scheduled for completion by late Summer 2021, weather permitting.
