In response to community concerns about noise the San Rafael and Novato City Councils have established a Quiet Zone effective immediately. The train horn will not blow at railroad crossings.

Upgrades are planned for one of the City’s oldest sections of central San Rafael near the Canal. At their Monday meeting, the City Council will review a bid from Northern Pacific Corporation for installation of new curb ramps, sidewalk, storm drain construction and a traffic signal. Focus is on safety for pedestrians by removing the ‘pork-chop’ island on the southwest corner, moving the traffic signal pole that is occasionally struck by vehicles and on the southeast corner, the City will install a widened sidewalk leading to the future bicycle/pedestrian bridge.
