Project Information

The County of Marin Department of Public Works (DPW) conducted a study of potential improvements to the bicycle and pedestrian facilities along a portion of the North-South Bikeway network in Marinwood.  This study was funded through the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program (NTPP) with a total budget of $80,000.  A contract for consultant support for the corridor study was issued on January 12, 2010. 

Existing conditions, opportunities and constraints were analyzed and presented at Public Workshop #1 on March 31st, 2010. Conceptual improvement alternatives were presented at Public Workshop #2 on May 24, 2011. 

Comments were provided to the Project Manager, Carey Lando, on or before June 30th, 2011.  The Study identified four alternatives ranging from the construction of Class II bicycle lanes along Marinwood Ave. to a new Class I multi-use path through the corridor plus intersection improvements such as bulbouts or roundabouts.  These alternatives allow for staging of improvements over time as funding becomes available.

News!!   In late 2011, the County of Marin was awarded a grant from the Transportation Authority of Marin  (TAM) to construct Class II bicycle lanes along Marinwood Ave.  Construction is expected to commence in mid 2013 and it will connect the Pacheco Pass Multi-use Path along Highway 101 with the existing Class II bicycle lanes along Las Gallinas Avenue.

Location

The study area included Miller Creek Road from the Highway 101 interchange  to Las Gallinas Ave., and along Las Gallinas Ave. from Miller Creek Rd. to Cedar Hill Dr. just past Lucas Valley Rd.  This is along a portion of the North-South Bikeway network in Marinwood that connects San Rafael and Novato via the Pacheco Path. 

Public Involvement

The County of Marin invited members of the public to participate throughout the development of the Study, and were to contact the Project Manager, Ms. Carey Lando (clando@marincounty.org or 415. 473. 5078).
