SAN MARCOS - The Texas Department of Transportation will begin a $20.7 million construction project on Aquarena Springs Dr. in May that officials hope will improve mobility, safety and the aesthetics of the area.

The Loop 82/Aquarena Springs project will construct an overpass across the train tracks on Aquarena Springs near Bobcat Stadium. Construction is expected to take about 2.5 years, TxDOT spokeswoman Kelli Reyna said.

The project is intended to improve mobility in the area. Trains passing through the city on Union Pacific tracks that cross Aquarena Springs can back up traffic, causing congestion and delays for San Marcos drivers.

The department is not anticipating any major lane closures except for a one-month period when the road, which normally features a center turn lane as well as two lanes each traveling east and west, will be reduced to one lane in each direction.

The project will include eight lanes at its widest point, with two lanes in each direction on the overpass and two lanes in each direction on access roads adjacent to the elevated roadway.
