One of Marin County’s most important and congested thoroughfares is due for pavement upgrades and other improvements over the next 2.5 years, and residents are invited to participate in the project planning. A community workshop will be held at Kent Middle School’s multipurpose room on Tuesday March 15 at 7 PM at to go over plans for Sir Francis Drake Boulevard between Highway 101 and the Ross town limit. Construction is due to begin in the fall of 2017. Cyclist input remains essential at this time to iron out final plans and prioritize project ideas.
Planners and engineers will be on hand. The project team has developed alternative design concepts to improve the function of the corridor, which runs through portions of Larkspur, Greenbrae, and Kentfield. One goal is to move traffic – drivers, pedestrians, cyclists – more quickly and safely through the busy area. The other is to rehabilitate aging infrastructure that has been in place for many decades.
Funding for the project, approximately $13.2 million, is from Measure A, Marin’s 2004 transportation sales tax. Additional funding is being sought so a maximum number of design concepts can be implemented.
More information about the project is available on the project web page.
