Community Workshop for the Central Marin Regional Pathways Gap Closure Project

Wednesday, February 27, 2019

Public Workshop for the Central Marin Regional Pathways Gap Closure Project

On Wednesday, February 27th, the Town of Corte Madera’s Public Works Department is hosting a community workshop for the Central Marin Regional Pathways Gap Closure Project.  The workshop will be held at Corte Madera’s Town Hall, located at 300 Tamalpais Drive from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.  Town staff and our consultants will introduce current conditions and potential features of the project.  The community’s input is sought in order to assist in identifying issues and providing feedback on potential project options.
 
The gap closure project has spanned more than 10 years of planning efforts involving a wide range of stakeholders, including: the Town of Corte Madera, local citizens, school parents, local advocacy groups, the City of Larkspur, Caltrans, the Bay Trail, and the Transportation Authority of Marin.  These efforts resulted in the award of a competitive Active Transportation Program grant for the further planning and design of project elements.

The gap closure project sits at the nexus of five active transportation pathways and routes.  Current conditions in the project’s vicinity leave users with sub-standard and aging pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure, uncontrolled pedestrian crossings, lack of bicycle facilities, challenging intersections and congested streets.  The gap closure project involves providing a number of pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular improvements on Wornum Drive, Nellen Avenue and Fifer Avenue in the Town of Corte Madera.  Potential project components consist of the following:
  • Improving the multiuse pathway along the south side of Wornum Drive between Tamal Vista Boulevard and Redwood Highway Frontage Road
  • Installing a roundabout at the intersection of Wornum Drive and Nellen Avenue
  • Providing a two-way cycle track on Nellen Avenue between Wornun Drive and Fifer Avenue
  • Enhancing uncontrolled pedestrian crossings across Fifer Avenue at Nellen Avenue
  • Enabling direct access to southbound Nellen Avenue via eastbound Fifer Avenue
Please join us on Wednesday, February 27th to provide your input. If you are unable to attend in person and wish to provide your comments on the project by email you can address them to R.J. Suokko at rsuokko@tcmmail.org
