[ARCHIVED] Construction to Begin on Phase I of Sessom Creek Improvements


The week of August 2, 2021, crews contracted by the City of San Marcos will begin work on Phase 1 of the Sessom Creek Improvements Project. The overall project aims to remove and replace the exposed wastewater main in Sessom Creek, reduce the amount of sediment that washes into the San Marcos River, slow stormwater runoff, and minimize creek erosion. 

The City has partnered with the Edwards Aquifer Habitat Conservation Plan (EAHCP) to design and construct the project, which will stabilize Sessom Creek from North LBJ to Canyon Road during Phase 1. Following the completion of Phase 1, work will expand from Canyon Road to Canyon Fork. The project area will also be replanted with a diversity of native trees. 

One westbound lane and one eastbound lane of Sessom Drive will be closed during construction. Crews will access the project site off Sessom near Loquat, and off Chestnut Street at Walnut Street. Equipment and materials will be stored at the City’s water tower site near Sessom Drive and Comanche Street.

The City contracted with Santa Clara Construction, Ltd. of Austin, TX to complete the project. Phase 1 totals approximately $3.2 million, with the EAHCP funding approximately 30% of construction costs. 

For more information about the project, including a virtual presentation, visit or call the City of San Marcos Engineering & Capital Improvements Department at 512.393.8130. For media inquiries, contact
