Pacheco Hill Path Reopens!
The Pacheco Hill Pathway, on the west side of Highway 101 between Alameda del Prado and Miller Creek road has been reopened after a ten day closure for much-needed repaving and other work. The path is the only route available for cyclists and pedestrians between Novato and Marinwood. The project, funded and overseen by Caltrans, involved repaving the entire path length, including repair of failed drainage structures, raising the grade of the path at the south end to address winter flooding issues, removal and repair of heaved pavement due to tree roots, relocation of the bollards at the north end so they are centered on the path, and striping a centerline. Remaining work to be completed includes striping edge lines, raising some of the electric pull boxes to be even with the new paving, and general cleanup. Please watch out for workers wrapping up these tasks.
A unique feature of this project was that during the closure a shuttle bus was provided to enable cyclists and pedestrians to get around the closure area since there is no other alternate route available. The 24 hour service ran on a 20-minute schedule during the day and evenings and on an on-demand basis overnight.
