Sir Francis Drake Boulevard Corridor Rehabilitation

This is a completed project. You are in the Archived Projects section of the website. Active projects can be found on the Projects webpage.



The County of Marin is in the process of rehabilitating 2.2 miles of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard between Highway 101 and the Ross town limits. The project objectives are to improve vehicle flow, transit operations, and pedestrian and bicyclist circulation and safety.

The project is funded by Measure A, the Marin County Transportation Sales Tax measure passed by voters in 2004, in partnership with the Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM). Marin County Public Works is also partnering with Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD) on this project to efficiently provide improvements to water services in the area.
