Update on Center Boulevard Redesign

Here is an update from our Public Works Director on the project to repave and add improvements to Center Boulevard. Plans and specifications have been submitted to Caltrans and the Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) for review and approval. We have received a list of questions from TAM and the Marin County Bicycle Coalition (MCBC) and are in the process of preparing the responses. We will be meeting with these agencies as soon as we are prepared.

The delay on this project has been due to the archeological and environmental clearance process for the Indian burial ground issue. We only just received the clearance from Caltrans last month. Caltrans delayed the process due to short staffing issues on their end.

If all goes well we intend to be able to bid the project in May 2007.
