Pedestrians Crossing College Avenue
Please remember to activate the flashing signals when using the crosswalk. During the demolition of the COM Learning Resource Center, large trucks will be entering and exiting the driveway near the crosswalk. This important safety feature is the only way vehicles exiting the driveway know that there are pedestrians in the crosswalk.
Construction Updates – July 6, 2020-July 12, 2020
Noisy activities may include but are not limited to: grading, backfilling, coring of masonry walls, paving, and potholing.
Paving of the fire line between our two campuses was completed this week. The pedestrian warning lights, vehicular gates, and striping of parking lot will not occur for several weeks while the asphalt cures.
Testing of the fire alarm system was delayed last week and is expected to occur this week. There is the potential you will hear sirens and see strobes.
Installation of the TREX fence between our two campuses is continuing. Installation will begin on the East of campus, by the creek, and move westward. A secure fence will be in place at the end of the day for the duration of the work. During the installation, there will be workers on KSD/MCOE side of the fence.
A portion of Parking Lot 12 has been closed these past few weeks as a result of damage to one of our PV canopies. Shoring for the repairs have been installed and destructive testing of the concrete pier is in progress.
Construction Activity for the Learning Resource Center
Preparation for demolition of the building is continuing this week. Over the course of the demolition there will be large trucks entering and exiting the site via the driveway close to the crosswalk on College Avenue. Please see the attached site map. Note the red box outlining the crosswalk on College Avenue. Please remember to activate the crosswalk signals so that vehicles know pedestrians are in the crosswalk.
Sir Francis Drake Boulevard
The County of Marin is in the final design phase for the rehabilitation of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard between Highway 101 and the Ross town limits. The project objectives are to improve vehicle flow, transit operations, and pedestrian and bicyclist circulation and safety.
The project is funded by Measure A, the Marin County Transportation Sales Tax measure passed by voters in 2004, in partnership with the Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM). The Marin County Department of Public Works is also partnering with Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD) on this project to efficiently provide improvements to water service to the area.
