Construction Underway !

Construction is now well underway. Our contractor, Ghilotti Brothers of San Rafael, has mobilized his equipment and workforce in preparation of building the new pedestrian and bicycle bridge in Larkspur. The Marin County Department of Public Works is managing the construction on behalf of TAM.

Our construction team has created a project website that will provide up to date information on construction activities as well as planned traffic control measures on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard. Click on the following link to view this project website:  http://www.marinferryconnection.com/

Truss Bridge East 

 Project Information Fact Sheet

The proposed project will create a new multi-use pathway extending the Cal Park Hill Multi-Use Pathway to the south by constructing a new elevated crossing over Sir Francis Drake Boulevard with an access ramp leading down to an existing multi-use pathway adjacent to the roadway. The new path is intended to further promote non-motorized commute alternatives and enhance recreational travel while providing safe, direct and convenient pedestrian/bicycle access between local transit facilities,schools, business centers and residential communities.

 Use Projections and Benefit Assessment
A report has been prepared that estimates the usage at the time the pathway opens as well as future use estimates of the number of bicyclist and pedestrians on an annual basis.  The report also assesses the benefits the project will have to the community such as reduced vehicle miles traveled, reduced pounds of carbon dioxide emitted and the estimated number of newly physically active people. Read the Use Projections and Benefit Assessment
