US 101/East Blithedale Avenue-Tiburon Boulevard Interchange Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Planning Study

 

US 101/East Blithedale Avenue-Tiburon Boulevard Interchange Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Planning

UPDATE: May 15, 2015

Possible future pedestrian and bicycle improvements at the US 101 / East Blithedale Avenue – Tiburon Boulevard (Route 131) interchange were presented at last night community workshop held at the Mill Valley Community Center. The workshop was well attended and will provide enormous feedback as the team refines its options. View last night’s introductory presentation.

UPDATE:  April 24, 2015

Join other stakeholders to learn about possible future pedestrian and bicycle improvements at the US 101 / East Blithedale Avenue – Tiburon Boulevard (Route 131) interchange. TAM, Caltrans, County of Marin, City of Mill Valley, Town of Tiburon, Golden Gate Transit and Marin Transit have been hard at work since the initial January workshop to develop and evaluation potential measures that could be implemented over time to enhance access and circulation to the interchange area’s 10 bus stops, walking paths, and bicycle routes. View the workshop flyer.

UPDATE: February 3, 2015

On January 29, TAM sponsored the initial community workshop at the Mill Valley Community Center to both educate the public about the project's purpose and to accept public input regarding existing bike/ped issues in this area.  View the presentation made that evening.

The Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) is facilitating a planning-level study of potential future pedestrian and bicycle improvements at the US 101/East Blithedale Avenue-Tiburon Boulevard (Route 131) interchange. The study will develop and evaluate potential measures that could be implemented over time to enhance access and circulation to the interchange area’s 10 bus stops, walking paths, and bicycle routes.

Everyday hundreds of pedestrians walk to or from one of the interchange’s bus stops or between Mill Valley and Strawberry. Recreational, commuter and tourist bicyclists travel along the overpass in large volumes, sharing the outside travel lanes with motorists. At the same time, over 70,000 vehicles use the interchange daily.

The project’s goals are to identify potential short-term, medium-term, and longer-range pedestrian and bicycle improvement measures:

  • Short-term measures that can be implemented in the near-term at reasonable cost without affecting interchange vehicle capacity
  • Medium-term measures that would require moderate traffic operations and/or geometric revisions to the interchange
  • Long-range measures that would require substantial changes to the interchange

TAM is coordinating closely with Caltrans, the City of Mill Valley, Town of Tiburon, County of Marin, Golden Gate Transit, Marin Transit, and California Highway Patrol, as well as various stakeholders. The study is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2015, with community workshops held at key milestones throughout the year.
