Residents of Rio Vista Terrace and the public are invited to a groundbreaking ceremony at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 6 for a major neighborhood improvement project about to get underway.
The groundbreaking will be held at the San Marcos Nature Center, 430 Riverside Drive. Mayor Susan Narvaiz, members of the City Council, and neighborhood leaders will be on hand to formally begin the street, sidewalk and utility project.
The Capital Improvements Department will start the two-year Rio Vista Neighborhood Improvements Project on Monday, March 8.
“The City of San Marcos is excited about beginning a major improvement project that has been long awaited by the residents of Rio Vista Terrace,” said Mayor Susan Narvaiz. “We hope residents will join us in celebrating the beginning of this project. We look forward to staying in touch with them as the project progresses.”
The $9.3 million project will provide new waterlines, new wastewater lines, storm drains, streets, curbs and sidewalks in the neighborhood of about 300 families and 25 businesses.
The project will be built by Texas Sterling Construction Company and should be completed in 2012.
Construction will begin at Riverside and Haynes Street with installation of a sanitary sewer line.
Rio Vista Terrace includes Cheatham Street from Hopkins to Riverside, Haynes, Field, Sycamore, Rio Vista, McKinnon and Riverside Drive. Improvements will be made from the I-35 frontage road to the railroad tracks.
