The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans)'s engineering team is working to relocate the bus stop at the northbound Freitas Parkway offramp to make it safer and ADA accessible.  As a part of the project, Caltrans is proposing to improve the intersection of Freitas Parkway, Civic Center Drive, and Old Redwood Highway by installing a round-about.  This change will improve traffic flow and make this very busy intersection/offramp safer for vehicles and pedestrians.  Currently, the project is in the preliminary design phase. On November 1, 2021 Caltrans presented an informational report the City of San Rafael City Council - check out the video below to view their presentation!
