LBJ Drive to close downtown for bike lane striping

Update

Due to rain forecast on Sunday, bike lane pavement marking on LBJ will begin at 10 p.m. Monday, April 3. One traffic lane will remain open for the duration of the project.

Traffic on LBJ will be reduced to one lane from San Antonio to University for bike boxes to be painted at the intersections of LBJ at Hopkins, at Hutchison and at University.

Head-in parking on LBJ will remain open. Electronic message boards have been placed in the area to inform motorists and the city has notified area businesses of the project.

The traffic improvements include bike boxes, bike lane striping and traffic signage. The new pavement markings will be bright green with white lettering.

Bike boxes are marked areas at the head of a traffic lane at intersections with signals that provide cyclists with a safe and visible way to get ahead of queuing traffic during a red light.

The work is anticipated to be complete by 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 4.

For more information on the project, please call the City of San Marcos Engineering department at 512-393-8130.
