On Monday, February 8, 2021, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) begun the 101 NB Central San Rafael Off-Ramp Bridge Replacement project in the City of San Rafael. Using new and innovative construction technology, the project will perform removal and replacement on the current bridge footprint, located at the northbound off-ramp on US Highway 101. Additional project work will include construction improvements at the 2nd and Irwin Street intersection as well.
There will be a series of full ramp closures throughout the project, three weekend full closures (55 hours), along with a significant amount of temporary lane shifts. Motorists are advised to drive with caution and follow all posted directional signs.
