Speed Limits on Point Reyes-Petaluma Road

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 10/4/2016


The Board will hear the first reading of an ordinance establishing speed limits on portions of Point Reyes-Petaluma Road near Nicasio. Residents have expressed concerns about speeds in the area near the intersection of Point Reyes-Petaluma Road and Laurel Canyon Road. After a review by the California Highway Patrol, Public Works staff recommends lowering the speed limit from 55 to 40 on Point Reyes-Petaluma Road between Platform Bridge Road and Laurel Canyon Road, and lowering it from 55 to 50 between Laurel Canyon Road and Dam Road. This action would result in the installation and ongoing maintenance of signs and markings but would not impact the County's General Fund. Staff recommends that the Board hear the first reading and schedule a merit hearing for 10:30 a.m. October 18. 


The Board heard the first reading and scheduled a merit hearing for 10:30 a.m. October 18.
