Boulevard construction projects are frustrating local drivers

Scott Yu of the Tiburon Knolls neighborhood took this image last week of the Tiburon Boulevard traffic backup from Trestle Glen Boulevard in the foreground beyond Reed Ranch Road to the rear. Yu said he worries about what the road would look like if neighborhoods had to evacuate for a disaster like a wildfire.

The problems are only just beginning.

Caltrans has had two Tiburon Boulevard projects, overlapping with downtown roadwork for the expansion of the Belvedere-Tiburon Library. Starting this week, drivers coming in and out of downtown will be routed around a stretch of the boulevard for up to a month as part of a utility-undergrounding project, and Caltrans has another project slated at Stewart Drive.
