Ferry Landing Landside Improvements

Post Date:11/02/2018 3:30 PM

At its meeting on October 30, the City Council received a status update on the visioning phase of a project to make landside improvements to the Sausalito ferry landing. Intended to complement the waterside improvements to the ramp and float of the ferry landing, the landside work focuses on improving bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicle circulation in the surrounding areas, as well as improving public access to the waterfront.

The landside project has $2.5 million in funding, which includes a $2.4 million grant from the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District and an appropriation of $100,000 from the City of Sausalito. 

The status update on landside improvements was presented by architect Robert Hayes of Robert Hayes + Associates, the City's primary consultant on the project. Hayes presented a minimum project that would satisfy bridge district grant requirements, as well as two enhanced designs that introduce additional improvements beyond the minimum. The estimated cost of the minimum project is $2.5 million. As part of the presentation, John Eberle of the bridge district also reviewed the project schedule for waterside improvements.

The enhanced landside designs were presented to get feedback from the City Council and to kick off a community engagement phase that will ask residents and commuters to share their vision of landside improvements. The first of a series of public workshops is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, January 19, 2019. Additional details on upcoming workshops, along with other opportunities for public input on the project, will be published in future editions of Sausalito Currents.

Any questions or comments about ferry landing landside improvements may be directed to Jonathon Goldman, Public Works Director and City Engineer, at (415) 289-4176 or jgoldman@sausalito.gov.
