Hwy 101 Greenbrae Interchange Environmental Report Public Hearing

From Transportation Authority of Marin:

Caltrans as lead agency is nearing the conclusion of the environmental review phase of the project and, in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), a Draft Environmental Document (DED) will be released later in the year. Comments on the DED will be taken during the circulation period for the DED, which will include a public hearing tentatively scheduled for January 29, 2013.

TAM has prepared two animations of the proposed improvements within the corridor.  The animations were shown during the public open house.  One view is a “fly-thru” perspective and the other view is from a driver’s perspective traveling along the highway.  Both animations can be viewed using the following web links:
