Work starts on Sessom, LBJ intersection


Due to low traffic levels during Spring Break, the City of San Marcos began planned work on the intersection of Sessom and North LBJ Drive ahead of schedule.

This section of the Sessom Street Drainage and Pavement project was slated for later in the 5-8 week project that began last week. However the city’s contractor, Austin Underground, believes this is a prime opportunity to try to complete it before university students return.

The contractor will allow traffic to move in all directions for the duration of construction. There will be lane reductions on all approaches to the intersection to allow for enough room to complete the work. Traffic flow will shift as each quadrant of the intersection is completed and reopened. The current plan is to do the eastbound portion Tuesday-Wednesday, and the westbound portion Thursday-Friday.

The City anticipates completion of the intersection work by Monday of next week, weather permitting.

The first phase of the Sessom Drive project will repair drainage inlets and install new culverts to improve drainage along Sessom. The project also will include some street reconstruction.

For more information on the project, call the City of San Marcos Capital Improvements Department at 512-393-8130.
