Caltrans Invites Public to Attend Informational Session for Lagunitas Creek Bridge Replacement Project on July 10


Marin County – Caltrans (District 4, Bay Area) invites the public to join an in-person informational session on Wednesday, July 10, 2024, between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. at The Dance Palace, 503 B St. in Point Reyes.

The Caltrans’ Project Team will feature several informational stations to inform the public about the Lagunitas Creek Bridge Replacement Project, which is scheduled for construction on State Route 1 (SR-1) in the summer of 2026. The project is currently in the design phase.

The project will replace the Lagunitas Creek Bridge. In addition, the culvert north of the bridge will be lengthened to match the new bridge width. The new bridge will have wider shoulders and will provide sidewalk and curb ramps that will be Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant. A crosswalk will also be added across Sir Francis Drake Boulevard at the SR-1 intersection to provide continuous safe access over Lagunitas Creek and into Point Reyes Station.

This project plans to provide a long-term, sustainable solution, maintaining long-term local and regional connectivity for the surrounding communities in Marin County.

The Lagunitas Creek Bridge is located just south of Point Reyes Station and north of the intersection with Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, approximately four-tenths of a mile east of the San Andreas fault. It serves as a vital connection between communities north and south of Point Reyes Station for residents, tourists, delivery trucks, emergency responders, transit providers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and equestrians. The bridge, which was built in 1929, is a three-span structure with a total length of 152 feet.

Caltrans performed confirmatory drilling for the project in March 2024. No other drilling is scheduled in 2024.
