Major Roads & Related Infrastructure

Major Roads & Related InfrastructureMajor roads often cross city limits and serve multiple communities. Projects on these roads must emphasize coordination between jurisdictions. Half of the funding allocated to Strategy #3 (approximately $43.9 M) will be spent on the most heavily traveled and significant roads and related infrastructure in Marin County. The remaining half will be spent on local roads and related infrastructure.

Priorities for major roadway and infrastructure projects will be determined by the Public Works Directors of each city, town, and the county working together with a Technical Advisory Committee that is representative of the broad interests of Marin County. All investment decisions will be evaluated using measurable performance criteria. The process will provide opportunity for public input and will be approved by the Transportation Authority in a public meeting as part of the Strategic Plan.

The following performance criteria will be used to prioritize major road projects:

  • Condition of roadway (Pavement Condition Index)
  • Average daily traffic (ADT)
  • Transit frequency
  • Bicycle and pedestrian activity
  • School access
  • Accident history
  • Opportunities for matching funds
  • Geographic equity

To ensure that each community in Marin County receives an equitable share of sales tax funds, expenditures for major infrastructure projects will be distributed to the five planning areas of the County based on their population (50%) and road miles (50%). This distribution will be balanced every six years.

The following roads of countywide significance are included as priority candidates for funding. These roads are used by nearly every Marin County resident. Additional roads may be considered if the needs of high priority roads within a planning area have been addressed.
