The Mill Race runs from Cape’s Dam to the Cape’s Park. Kayakers in November 2017 noticed the bridge had collapsed over the Mill Race.
The City of San Marcos is warning river users to avoid the Mill Race because of a collapsed footbridge blocking the channel.
The footbridge connecting the closed Thompson’s Island parkland with the bank of the San Marcos River has collapsed and poses a navigation hazard to kayakers and other river users.
City staff are inspecting the wreckage and determining how best to remove the remains of the footbridge.
None of the land on either side of the footbridge is open to the public; both Thompson’s Island and Cape’s Park remain closed. Major repairs are required in these parks and no date has been set to reopen them.
