San Marcos Creek Project to provide improvements to flood-prone areas

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The groundbreaking ceremony for the San Marcos Creek project took place Wednesday, which will provide infrastructure to an area in need.

The $100-million infrastructure project is designed to manage flooding along the San Marcos Creek using two new bridges to channelize parts of the creek.

When construction is completed, there will be new and safer ways for resident to travel around the Creek, a new park to use as a community and preserved habitat to protect the area around the creek.

Some of the project’s benefits include minimizing flooding risks, preserving and enhancing 1.5 miles of creek habitat, new community park and trails, and building new infrastructure including two bridges.

The project is scheduled to begin in early 2020 and will take about two years to complete.
