Public Works to Repave E. Aquarena Springs Drive

The City of San Marcos Public Works street crews will begin minor reconstruction of east Aquarena Springs Drive from I-35 to the 1900 block on Monday, May 12. Weather permitting, the project is expected to take four to six weeks.

The crews will mill the old asphalt, shape the street and repave it with asphalt. They will also add striping for bicycle lanes when the paving is completed.

The project is part of minor reconstruction of 8.05 lane miles of streets this fiscal year. The department maintains more than 271 total lane miles in San Marcos.

Streets that are being resurfaced in 2007-2008 include Alabama, Aquarena Springs, Roosevelt, Cheatham from C.M. Allen to Guadalupe, Clyde from Perkins to Girard, High Street, Hummingbird, Laurel Lane from Alta Vista to Quail Creek, Perkins from Franklin to Hazelton, Quail Creek, Weatherford, and Wilson from San Antonio to Faris.
