Central Marin Ferry Connection Multi-Use Pathway

Bridge 

 

Project Milestone !

Later this month the new pedestrian and bicycle bridge structure will be delivered and erected over East Sir Francis Drake Boulevard which is expected to take place over two nights at the end of March. The planned road closure from the Highway 101 on and off ramps to the Larkspur Landing Circle intersection at the Ferry Terminal entrance will be necessary to allow installation of the bridge and to protect the traveling public.   The County of Marin acting as the construction manager for TAM is working closely with the contractor to efficiently install the bridge.

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
