Construction for the San Rafael High School crosswalk begins Monday October 26! This crosswalk is being installed about 350 feet east of Third Street/Union Street. It will come with a pedestrian hybrid beacon that will be dark unless a pedestrian activates the button to cross. Pedestrians will cross in two phases and this beacon will be coordinated with the signal at Third/Union to minimize vehicle delay on Third Street.
Construction is expected to go through mid-December. The project will be done in three phases, from 7am – 5pm weekdays and with lane closures occurring from 9am – 3pm to minimize traffic disruptions. We will monitor traffic and make adjustments to the duration of lane closures as needed.
Phase 1 – South side/eastbound lane closure Oct 26
Phase 2 – North side/westbound lane closure ~Nov 9
Phase 3 – Middle island/inside lane closures ~Nov 20
