Recently, SMART organized their largest field meeting since the start of the pandemic! Representatives from SMART, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), consultants, and San Rafael Department of Public Works met to discuss improvements to the pedestrian crossings at Mission Avenue, Pacheco Street, and Paloma Avenue. Sidewalks will be modified, and fences will be added to force pedestrians to turn and look up and down the tracks before crossing the tracks. Most of the work is within SMART right of way, but any changes that are made around train crossings must be approved by the CPUC. The designs are being completed and improvements will likely happen Summer 2022.
