Sir Francis Drake Boulevard is one of the busiest roads in Marin County. The Sir Francis Drake Rehabilitation project is the top priority Major Roads Project for the Ross Valley Planning Area to receive funding from Measure A, the Marin County transportation sales tax. The objectives of this project are to repair the roadway and improve traffic flow, bus operations and pedestrian and bicycle safety on the 2.5-mile section of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard between Highway 101 and the Ross town limits.
The County prepared and released an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) in 2018. Construction is expected to occur over two spring/summer periods targeted for approximately May-October 2019 and 2020.
The project is managed by the Marin County Department of Public Works. Learn more at the Marin County website.
