Share Your Thoughts on Greenbrae Interchange Project

A meeting is set for Tuesday in Larkspur to solicit comments on the Draft Environmental Document.

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.

The project DRAFT EIR is being proposed to be accepted with a non-negative impact. The design does not address bicycle, pedestrian requirements of present, nor the future traffic on Sir Francis Drake, the needs brought on by SMART, new housing in Larkspur, Corte Madera, the likely Sir Francis Drake hotel eat of 101. There is no guiding principal of creating a new vision for various transportation needs, In addition, the SIGNIFICANT traffic, visual impact of the design on local streets needs to be redesigned and the SFD traffic flow is NOT resolved. Send this project back for continued design efforts.
