FROM STAFF AND SUBMITTED REPORTS
Segments of Riverside Drive and Cheatham Street will be closed partially or completely for as long as two months as the city completes drainage improvements and repaving along the central San Marcos thoroughfares.
Austin-based Smith Contracting Co. began work Monday on the $773,000 project.
Cheatham Street will be reduced to one-way traffic westbound throughout the project, and northbound traffic on Riverside Drive will be closed to traffic except people going to and from homes and businesses on the westernmost end of the Rio Vista Terrace neighborhood.
Traffic on the southbound Interstate 35 access road can either turn right onto Roberts Street into Rio Vista, veer left on Sycamore, then left on Cheatham to the roundabout or drivers can turn right onto CM Allen Parkway into the downtown area, right on Hopkins then right on Riverside Drive.
The project includes street reconstruction of Riverside Drive from Cheatham Street to the IH 35 access road, as well as sidewalk and parking improvements along to Crook Park. To address drainage issues in the area, a stormwater outfall connection to the mill race on Cheatham Street will be installed.
