Locals will again have a chance to give their two cents regarding the Greenbrae Interchange Project during a public hearing Tuesday, Jan. 29 in Larkspur.
The project, in partnership between the Transportation Authority of Marin and CalTrans, would hopefully reduce traffic congestion within the Greenbrae/Twin Cities Corridor on Highway 101.
How will this be accomplished?
“This will be accomplished through the reconfiguration of existing US 101 interchanges, and the construction of auxiliary lanes and collector-distributor roadways. Auxiliary lanes are constructed between on and off ramps to allow drivers a safe way to merge into traffic while also preventing bottlenecks caused by drivers attempting to enter or exit the freeway. Collector-distributer roadways are parallel roads to the freeway which help move traffic from local streets to the freeway,” according to an earlier press release from the Transportation Authority of Marin.
On Tuesday, Larkspur, Corte Madera residents and other affected by the project, have the opportunity to weigh in on the Draft Environmental Document during a public hearing from 6-8 p.m. at Redwood High school in Larkspur.
Then, on Feb. 5, TAM will give a presentation of the project during a joint meeting of Larkspur City Council and Corte Madera Town Council. The meeting will be held from 7-9 p.m. Feb. 5 at the Corte Madera Rec Center, 498 Tamalpais Drive.
TAM has budgeted $132.933 million for the project, with money coming from Measure E funds. Construction of the project is scheduled to begin in October 2014 and be completed by December 2016, according to earlier Larkspur-Corte Madera Patch reports.
