Lansdale Fish Passage Project
This summer, San Anselmo’s Department of Public Works is partnering with the Friends of Corte Madera Creek to improve the bridge area below Lansdale Ave and Center Boulevard for fish passage. The California Department of Fish and Game provided funding for this project, which will open 4 ½ miles of breeding habitat to migratory steelhead and other fish.
The large drop at the downstream end of the bridge and the flat bottom of the invert are barriers to fish at low and intermediate flows; therefore, the project will concentrate the flows to one side and install a series of low baffles to keep water depth suitable for fish. The project will also include repairing some of the bridge’s structural deficiencies and restoring portions of the adjacent banks with native vegetation.
Construction is scheduled to begin at the end of June and could last until October. If you have any questions or comments please get in touch with Gerhard Epke at firstname.lastname@example.org
2012 Street Projects
The Town will be contracting with Maggiora & Ghilotti, Inc. (Contractor) to perform the 2012 Street Rehabilitation and Safety Improvement Projects. Construction work will begin in July and be completed in September.
Every effort will be made to minimize disruption to traffic flow during construction; however, there will be some loss of on-street parking, and when the paving portion of the work commences, there will be some traffic delays or street closures. During the course of construction there will be days where access to driveways will be limited; however, overnight parking will be allowed on adjacent streets during the projects.
The work is divided into three projects:
Project A involves street rehabilitation and safety improvement work on the following streets within the Town of San Anselmo:
- Madrone Avenue from Sir Francis Drake to Center
- Brookside Drive (including Roble Ct.) from Berkeley to Broadmoor Avenue
- Sunny Hills Drive from Sir Francis Drake Boulevard to Town limits
- Foss Avenue from Sunnyside to Melville Avenue
- Raymond Avenue from Crescent Road to Tamalpais Avenue
- Sierra Avenue from Sir Francis Drake Boulevard to Klare Avenue
- Woodland Avenue from Sunnyside to Cedar
In general the work consists of removing the existing street surface and installing a new asphalt surface for the entire width of the street on each of the streets noted above. The work also includes the installation of ADA compliant sidewalk curb ramps at various intersections as well as repair of several failed asphalt berms and curbs.
Project B involves street rehabilitation and safety improvements on Greenfield Avenue between Sir Francis Drake Boulevard and Spring Grove Avenue.
In general he work consists of grinding and inlaying the asphalt to create a new road surface for the full width of the road. The work also includes the installation of ADA compliant sidewalk curb ramps at the Greenfield Avenue / Lincoln Avenue intersection, as well as minor drainage improvements and several pothole repairs on Greenfield Avenue between Spring Grove Avenue and Sequoia Drive.
Project C involves the construction of new sidewalks and safety improvements on Butterfield Avenue from Woodside Drive to Carlson Avenue.
