MARIN SONOMA NARROWS TO OPEN ADDITIONAL CARPOOL LANES
NOVATO - Caltrans, the Transportation Authority of Marin, and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission are pleased to announce that on Thursday morning, November 14th, a new southbound US 101 HOV lane will open between De Long Avenue and the Rowland Boulevard Overcrossing.
“Caltrans and our transportation partners continue to bring much-needed improvements to the U.S. Route 101 corridor in the North Bay,” said Caltrans District 4 Director Bijan Sartipi. “This project in Marin County will help reduce travel delay and congestion, and will improve mobility along the 101 corridor.”
The approximately $4 million project was funded by Proposition 1B. In 2006, California voters approved Proposition 1B, investing $19.9 billion in roads, bridges, ports and transit. In total, nearly $17 billion ($16.6) in Proposition 1B funds have been put to work statewide for transportation purposes
