Sir Francis Drake Boulevard is one of the busiest roads in Marin County carrying over 40,000 vehicles each day.


1/24/18: Sir Francis Drake Boulevard Improvements - Ross to Highway 101

Traveling along portions of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard between the Town of Ross and Highway 101 will become easier and safer in the next several years. TAM is sponsoring this major road project funded by Marin’s voter approved transportation sales tax.  The County of Marin is leading the Sir Francis Drake Rehabilitation project to improve conditions for motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users the heavily traveled and congested corridor. Design concepts have been developed based on extensive community input, engineering and traffic analysis and environmental review.

A project open house was hosted by the County to receive input on community priorities for project elements on Tuesday, January 30.

A Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was circulated for a 45-day comment period on October 11, 2017. The environmental team is in the process of responding to comments submitted on the Draft EIR which will lead to preparation of the Final EIR.

The Final EIR will be prepared and circulated for comments in the coming months and the Marin County Board of Supervisors is expected to host a public hearing on the Final EIR in April.

Construction is planned to be over two six-month periods in mid-2019 and 2020 to take advantage of times when traffic is lightest and weather-related delays are minimal. For more information, see the Marin County webpage for this project.

More information on this project can be found on the Marin County website here.
