Ribbon cutting slated for Monday for Sessom bike, pedestrian improvements

The City Capital Improvements and Engineering Department will host a ribbon cutting event on Monday, May 14 at 8:30 a.m. to celebrate the completion of the Sessom roadway, pedestrian and drainage project. The public is invited to attend.

The event will be held at the corner of Sessom and Peques in the Texas State Physical Plant Administration parking area. Attendees will be allowed to park in the lot for the event.

Curran Construction of Converse began work on the project in April 2017 to realign State Street with Peques, add safety improvements at the intersection of Pleasant and Sessom, add a wide sidewalk throughout the project limits, add shared lane marking and signage for bicyclists, and reconstruct all driveways to current accessibility standards. The project also includes the City’s first Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon, which is located mid-block, to provide a safe crossing on Sessom in an area that was previously un-marked, but often used by pedestrians.

The $1.8 million project was jointly funded by the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO), Texas State University and the City of San Marcos. Construction on the project was completed in one year.
