San Marcos Creek project
On Sept. 24, 2019, the San Marcos City Council awarded a contract so construction can begin on San Marcos Creek project to increase the San Marcos community’s access to and enjoyment of San Marcos Creek. Construction is anticipated to begin in the winter of 2020 and is anticipated for completion in 2022.
About the Project
If you’re not familiar with the project, it is adjacent to the San Marcos Creek, with the following boundaries:
- West San Marcos Boulevard to the North
- Grand Avenue to the East
- Via Vera Cruz to the West
- Discovery Avenue to the South
The project will solve a long-standing problem of flooding in the community, by raising the roads and bridges in the project area. This is in addition to adding open space by preserving creek habitat and providing a walking trail, vistas to the creek and a park for the community to enjoy.
The City’s project team has hired JPW Communications to assist with communications and outreach to the community throughout project construction.
As part of our early outreach, JPW would like to share information with you about the project (see attached fact sheet). We encourage you to read through this information and the following ways to stay updated on the project throughout construction.

The City will also host a public meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the San Marcos Community Center, so please save the date. The meeting will provide an opportunity to hear more information about the project, construction schedule and how to stay informed throughout construction.
Thank you in advance.
