Three roads in Sleepy Hollow to be repaved and improved
San Rafael, CA – Marin County Department of Public Works’ (DPW) 2019 summer paving program for Marin’s central region will address three roads in the Sleepy Hollow neighborhood. The estimated $1 million project is scheduled to begin mid-July and is expected to be completed by the end of August.
The three stretches will receive full-width grinding of the roadway, allowing for base failures to be repaired, thereby increasing the longevity of the new pavement. In addition to the resurfacing, drainage improvements and safety railing will be implemented. Pavement markings and traffic striping will also be upgraded to meet current safety standards.
Construction will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. The work will require temporary periods of single-lane access during which the traffic flow will be controlled by flaggers. However, some sections of the roadway are too narrow to accommodate construction equipment and single-lane traffic at the same time. Those locations will require intermittent road closures to finalize the repaving process. Before those temporary closures, every effort will be made to provide notice and minimize the inconvenience for residents in the vicinity.
Funding for the planned improvements will be covered by the County’s Road and Bridge Rehabilitation Program. A separate paving project, which is still in the design phase, is slated for later this summer to target the southern region of Marin. Improving roadway conditions across unincorporated areas of Marin has been an ongoing commitment of the County for years and is one of the top priorities for the Board of Supervisors.
