December update on the Status of Tam Junction Traffic Signals

County of Marin - Supervisor Sears

Supervisor Kate Sears here with the December update on the Status of Tam Junction Traffic Signals


December Update from Marin County Department of Public Works re: Tam Junction Traffic Signal Projects


Flamingo Signal


The signal poles are scheduled to be delivered to the contractor in mid-December, and installed before the end of the year.  Once installed, Caltrans will review and accept the signal, then install the controller and activate the signal.  The timing for when to activate the signal light is a Caltrans decision.  Traffic loop detectors will be installed Thursday and Friday 12/6 and 12/7, with road striping scheduled for 12/10 and 12/11 weather permitting.


Tennessee Valley Pathway – Last Working Day Not Yet Determined Due to Rain Delays


The contract working days end at the end of the year (however, rain days may push the completion into early January).  The electrical subcontractor is working with PG&E to shut off power to install the pole at Hwy 1 at Tennessee Valley Road.  As with Flamingo, the contractor’s work should be completed by the end of the year.  Caltrans will install the controller with the signal activated sometime after that, as determined by Caltrans. 


For the Tennessee Valley Multiuse Pathway boardwalk portion east of Hwy 1, one outstanding item is to pave a section between the Mill Valley-Sausalito Path and new boardwalk section near the Tam Woods Hotel parking lot.  Several dry weather days are needed to allow paving to occur, which may delay completion further. 


Thanks for your patience as completing these projects have taken longer than originally anticipated. We will do our best to keep you apprised as we receive further updates. Please feel free to call the office of Supervisor Kate Sears at 499-7331 if you would like further information.
