Why is this project important?

The Second St and Fourth St intersection is the westerly gateway for the City of San Rafael serving pedestrians, bicyclists, transits, and motorists. However, this critical connection to San Rafael requires a substantial traffic-flow upgrade. This project will provide safety and access improvements, upgrade the intersection to meet current standards, and address the inefficiencies of the non-conventional intersection.

Project improvements include but are not limited to reconfiguring the intersection to include West End Ave and Marquard Ave into the signalized intersection, simplifying and straightening the pedestrian crossings, continuing the bikeway connection from the Third Street Corridor Rehabilitation project, and undergrounding overhead utility lines.
