Town officials eye traffic study for Tiburon Boulevard
Town officials are planning to solicit a traffic study of Tiburon Boulevard that could include examining how a planned yearlong Caltrans maintenance project would impact the main thoroughfare and exploring how to best keep traffic flowing at intersections.
Councilmembers made those and other suggestions while discussing the scope of the study at their Dec. 6 meeting. Town staff will now work on a request for proposal to be brought back to the council at its Jan. 17 meeting. The study would be funded by money from the town’s American Rescue Plan Act coronavirus-relief allocation.
There is about $127,000 left of the town’s initial $2.17-million allocation, which doesn’t include the $100,000 previously earmarked for the traffic study in 2022. Town Manager Greg Chanis said the cost of the study could change depending on what the proposal request calls for.
