Final Section of Shared Use Pathway Project Construction to Begin


Beginning Wednesday, July 28, residents and park patrons will see construction around the railroad trestle between Children’s Park and Rio Vista Park. Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) contractors will begin authorized excavation and vegetation removal to construct a below-grade crossing under the railroad for the final portion of the new ADA-compliant bicycle and pedestrian trail.

The below-grade crossing feature will provide enhanced safety measures and connectivity between Children’s Park and Rio Vista Park. TxDOT and the City of San Marcos have worked closely with environmental engineers during preconstruction planning to ensure that mitigation measures are implemented to protect the San Marcos River.

Pedestrians are asked to use the proposed alternate routes when crossing between parks and to avoid crossing in unsafe areas. Project completion is anticipated in late September 2021, weather permitting.

For more information, contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 512.393.8400. For media inquiries, contact closure RioVista
