Lucky Drive in Corte Madera to North San Pedro Road in San Rafael




This two-volume set is the Final Environmental Impact Statement/Report (FEIS/R) for the Marin 101 HOV Lane Gap Closure Project.

The Marin County Congestion Management Agency and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) are proposing to relieve recurring congestion in the US 101 corridor in Marin County by completing the high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane system between the Richardson Bay Bridge and Route 37. The Marin 101 HOV Lane Gap Closure Project will close the gap in the current HOV lane system between Lucky Drive in Corte Madera and North San Pedro Road in San Rafael.
