From a recent city press release:
The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization Transportation Policy board of directors awarded the City of San Marcos $12.2 million in state transportation funds at its Oct. 10 board meeting. The funds will go toward two projects:
- $6 million to widen and improve Hunter Road between Wonder World Drive and Bishop Street; the project will allow for the inclusion of hike and bike amenities and intersection improvements
- $6.2 million for intersection improvements at Loop 82 and SH 80 at IH-35
“These improvements will enhance mobility and safety at very important entrance points to our city,” said Mayor Daniel Guerrero. “The fact that CAMPO awarded the funds shows how important these projects are and how diligently our Capital Improvements and Transportation staff worked at developing them.”
Construction is slated to begin by August 2013.
