Bus Stop Improvements Update - March 22, 2019

Fri, Mar 22, 2019

The contractor continues to make progress on completing the final phase of the State of Good Repair (SOGR) Bus Stop Improvements Project.  Construction started in December 2018 on a series of upgrades to local bus stops to improve passenger amenities and Americans with Disabilities (ADA) access. The rainy weather pattern continues to impact the schedule for installing improvements.

This week (March 18-22) has been no exception with only two sunny days to schedule work. Next week doesn't offer much relief but we plan to use the time to focus on paperwork and coordination tasks.  In spite of the inclement weather patterns, of the eleven bus stop locations across the county, the project has only two stops remaining:

  • Tiburon Blvd & Greenwood Cove Rd
  • Bellam Boulevard & E. Francisco Boulevard

We are counting on April gifting us with drier weather to install the planned improvements. The next update will share the poposed construction dates. If you have any questions about the project or construction activity, contact Adrienne Taylor at 415 226-0855 or ataylor@marintransit.org.

Bus Stop Improvements Update - March 1, 2019

Fri, Mar 1, 2019
Construction

Construction has been underway since December 3, 2018 for the final phase of the State of Good Repair (SOGR) Bus Stop Improvements Project.  Crews have been installing upgrades to local bus stops that improve passenger amenities and Americans with Disabilities (ADA) access.  However, the stormy weather has significantly impaced the schedule initially anticipated to construct improvements at eleven bus stop locations across the county.

The raindrops just keep falling and all too frequently construction has come to a complete halt. But we did get a much-needed break last week when crews were able to demo and pour concrete at Magnolia & Bon Air (Stop ID 40302) and Redhill & Sequoia (Stop ID 40409).  

This week (February 25 - March 1), the gift of dry weather yesterday and today allowed the contractor to install bus shelters at both locations. With work now finished at these two stops the number of complete bus stops has grown to seven:

Bus Stop Improvements Update - February 15, 2019

Fri, Feb 15, 2019

By now you might have heard the good news that for a broad region of the state including Marin County, the drought is over. Marin Transit offers the tattered State of Good Repair (SOGR) construction schedule to prove it.  Construction has been underway since December 3, 2018 for the final phase of the SOGR Bus Stop Improvements Project.  In between the downpours, crews have been installing upgrades to local bus stops that improve passenger amenities and Americans with Disabilities (ADA) access.  Making progress has truly been a challenge as rain unrelentingly fell upon the construction sites. However, the drier forecase for next week will allow us to schedule some of the work that fell victim to the torrential rains experienced the past few weeks.  Below is the rescheduled work plan.

Next week (February 19-22) - President's Day Week:

Redhill Avenue at Sequoia Drive - The construction of this stop will coincide with Spring Break since it is a heavily used student stop. This helps to minimize passenger disruptions. A temporary stop will be placed in front of United Markets at Red Hill Ave and Forbes.

    ✔ Install new shelter

Week of February 25 - March 8:

Magnolia Avenue at Bon Air Road -

Bus Stop Improvements Update - January 28, 2019

Tue, Jan 29, 2019

Construction has been underway since December 3, 2018 for the final phase of the State of Good Repair (SOGR) Bus Stop Improvements Project.  Crews have been installing upgrades to local bus stops that improve passenger amenities and Americans with Disabilities (ADA) access.

The weather is wreaking havoc on the schedule to construct these improvements. In spite of rain being forecast intermittently over the next two weeks, the SOGR project should make some progress.  Please note that there have been substantial changes to the construction schedule provided two weeks ago.  The revised schedule shows the following:

This week (January 28 - February 1):

   Tamalpais Drive & Madera Boulevard

      ✔ Install new shelter

Next week (February 4 - 8):

   Magnolia Avenue at Bon Air Road

      ✔ Temporarily relocate stop 195 feet from current bus stop
      ✔ Remove sidewalk & asphalt
