Document Description
The proposed project would include improvements to Novato Boulevard between Grant Avenue and Diablo Avenue to provide two through travel lanes (one in each direction) and a center, two-way left-turn lane between Diablo Avenue and 7th Street-Tamalpais Avenue, a second northbound through-travel lane between Boulevard Terrace and 7th Street-Tamalpais Avenue, and three through-travel lanes (two northbound and one southbound) and a center, two-way left-turn lane between 7th Street-Tamalpais Avenue and Grant Avenue. The proposed project would include other improvements such as new and reconstructed sidewalks, new bike lanes, reconstructed driveways, landscaping and water quality enhancement areas, curb and gutter improvements, and on-street parking. In addition to the proposed roadway improvements, the project would include upgrades to existing City utilities including storm drainage, signals and lighting, and other public agency utilities, such as sanitary sewer and water lines. Acquisition of portions of land along Novato Boulevard would be necessary in order to construct the proposed project. Land acquisitions would be required on the frontage of five parcels, all of which would be between Cypress Avenue and Diablo Avenue.
