The City of San Marcos Transportation Division of Public Services will restripe and add signage to a portion of eastbound and westbound Wonder World Drive on Jan. 6 to create dual left turn lanes to access Interstate 35 north.
“With the opening of the opening of the Wonder World Drive extension project, the increase in traffic has caused a backup at I-35 during peak periods,” said Sabas Avila, the assistant director of Public Services. “This restriping project will provide immediate relief to a bottleneck along the corridor.”
One eastbound and westbound lane on Wonder World will be open at all times, with work scheduled to begin in the right lane and move to the left lane. Both east and westbound lanes will be closed intermittently. The turn lane improvements will be accomplished through lane restriping, the addition of signage and signal light timing. J.C Evans of Austin was awarded the $25,000 construction contract. For more information on this project, please call Public Services at 512-393-8036.
