Planned Improvements to Gate 6 Intersection Move Forward

Post Date:04/19/2019 4:15 PM

At its meeting on April 16, the City Council approved a motion to solicit bids for the construction of improvements to the intersection at Gate Six Road, contingent upon final authorization from Caltrans. If authorization is received, construction is expected to take place from summer to fall 2019. 

The planned improvements will add bicycle-detection sensors so that southbound cyclists approaching the intersection via the Sausalito-Mill Valley Multi-Use Path can be given a green light to safely cross over to the southbound lane of Bridgeway. The project also includes pavement rehabilitation, a redesign of the path approach at the northeast corner of the intersection, and curb ramp improvements.

The new configuration is expected to be significantly safer for cyclists and pedestrians and should reduce conflicts between cyclists, pedestrians, and motor vehicles.

Work was originally scheduled to begin in 2018 but was delayed so that the City could seek additional funding for the project. Thanks to a new federal grant awarded through the Transportation Authority of Marin, the City now has sufficient funding to move forward with the project. Total grant funding is $1,111,000, with the City expected to add an additional $28,000 for the construction of accessible curb ramps.

Any questions about improvements to the Gate 6 intersection may be directed to Public Works Project Manager Jill Barnes at jbarnes@sausalito.gov.
