Intersection Improvements to SH 80 and Loop 82 at I-35


TxDOT, in partnership with the city of San Marcos, is making intersection improvements to SH 80 (Hopkins Street) and Loop 82 (Aquarena Springs Drive) at Interstate 35 in San Marcos to improve operations at these intersections.

Planned Improvements

The first phase of the project will take place at Aquarena Springs Drive. Work includes:

  • Reconstructing the intersection to reduce congestion
  • Raised medians to improve safety
  • Pedestrian improvements

Construction will begin in winter 2013 with an estimated completion in spring 2014.

The second phase of the project includes similar work at Hopkins Street. The project is anticipated to begin once the work at Aquarena Springs Drive is complete. Construction is expected to last about five months.

The estimated construction cost for both intersection improvements is $4.7 million. The contractor is Dan Williams Company of Austin.
