Construction at Red Hill Center Starting March 6

City-required in-ground crosswalk lights at the Red Hill entrance are being installed, so don't expect to drive into the shopping center from Sir Francis Drake Blvd.

Reaching the , or any other business at the Red Hill shopping center will be a bit more difficult this week, as the traffic main entrance on Sir Francis Drake Blvd. will be closed for as long as 11 days, according to the.

All businesses in the shopping center will be open their regular hours, however.

The reconstruction is to install in-ground pedestrian crosswalk lights to comply with city requirements, according the Dee Dee Iacopi, of the Red Hill shopping center.

The period of construction will begin on Tuesday, March 6. Although the Police advisory states “the main entrance to the Shopping Center will be closed for 11 days," a spokesman for Red Hill anticipated the project to take a maximum of 10 days, and suggested it could be finished in seven.

Under a best-case scenario, then, traffic access to the shopping center from Sir Francis Drake Blvd. could return as early as next Monday, March 12.

During construction, both automotive and foot traffic is advised to access the shopping center either through the Sunnyhills Dr. or Shaw Dr. entrances.

I'm still mystified why they didn't leave well enough alone. Did some corporation from LA decide to buy Red Hill and make it their idea of "Marin"? It's just ridiculous how much money they are putting into it. And I've got news for them, piping bad music all over at that volume sucks!

Closing the main entrance to a shopping center for 11 days. Wow. How are small businesses supposed to survive?

Accessing Red Hill is not so much the problem, but try exiting when you want to turn left out of Red Hill. There should, at the least be some traffic direction. I have seen several close calls. And as to the time it takes. There are many ways this could have been handled including working longer hours. It is stunning to see how much was accomplished and how quickly at the new Good Earth in Fairfax and how beautiful it is. Have yet to see any improvement worth the loss of business and businesses experienced during this questionable renovation.

I honestly could not have imagined a renovation could make Red Hill look worse than it was, but the new look is breathtakingly bad. It looks like it was updated to the style of a trailer park in 1979. The notion that Roundtable was booted to make way for something more upscale is absurd.

They aren't supposed to. Management probably wants them to be forced out to bring in more "acceptable" companies. Shame on Red Hill!

They are not supposed to. Management probably wants to force them all out to bring in "acceptable" businesses that fit THEIR view of Marin. Shame on Red Hill.
