Rail car bridge coming for Post Road

Anita Miller - Managing Editor

The commute for thousands of people in northern San Marcos is about to get shorter.

Work has already begun on a temporary bridge to replace the Blanco River crossing at Post Road that was destroyed in the Memorial Day Weekend flood.

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro was quick to visit the CM Allen Homes along River Road after the Memorial Day Weekend flood but the federal aid he promised still hasn’t arrived six months later.

Cost estimates to repair the desperately needed housing units are close to $1.2 million.
