Project Information Project Name: Grand Avenue Bicycle Pedestrian Bridge and Sidewalk Improvement Project Project Description: The proposed project will close a gap in the City of San Rafael's bicycle and pedestrian network by installing a new 12 -foot wide, 150 -foot long bridge across the San Rafael Canal along the east side of Grand Avenue exclusively for bicyclists and pedestrians. In addition to the new bridge on the east side of Grand Avenue, the project will install a sidewalk on the west side of the existing vehicular bridge and remove the existing uncontrolled crosswalk just south of the bridge thereby closing a significant gap in the pedestrian path of travel on the west side of Grand Avenue. Once completed, this project (coupled with other active projects along the Francisco Boulevard East/Grand Avenue corridor) will provide safe access from the Canal neighborhood and Bellam Boulevard to San Rafael High School, Davidson Middle School and Coleman Elementary School. The project will also establish a safe path of travel to the Bettini Transit Center, Montecito Plaza Shopping Center, and the Downtown San Rafael business district. The Grand Avenue/Francisco Boulevard East corridor improvements project consists of four integrated components: 1. 580/101 Interchange Improvements — This project widened sidewalks on Bellam Boulevard between Kerner Boulevard and 1-580 EB Ramps and on Francisco Boulevard East between Bellam Boulevard and Vivian Way. Construction was completed in 2010. 2. Francisco Boulevard East Sidewalk Widening — This project will continue the widened sidewalk on Francisco Boulevard East between Vivian Way and the southern end of the Grand Avenue Bridge. The design, permitting, and environmental clearance portion of this project is complete. San Rafael is actively seeking construction funding. 3. Grand Avenue Bridge Proiect (this grant application) — Installation of a new 12' wide pedestrian/bicycle bridge on the east side of Grand Avenue, installation of a 4' wide sidewalk on the west side of the bridge, removal of the existing uncontrolled crosswalk on the southern end of the bridge. The 95% design, permitting, and CEQA requirements are complete. 4. Second Street and Grand Avenue Intersection Improvements Pro iect — Install widened sidewalks from the northern end of the bridge to the intersection of 2nd/Grand, install mast arm traffic signals, accessibility upgrades, remove the pork chop island on the southwest corner of the intersection. The design of this project is complete. Page 1 of 2 3.

Project Information Project Name: Fifth Avenue/Cottage Avenue Solar Powered Crossing Sign Project Project Description: The proposed project will replace existing static school crossing signs with solar powered high visibility LED signs or solar powered rectangular rapid flashing beacon signs. The signs will be installed at the uncontrolled school crosswalk located on the western leg of the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Cottage Avenue. Additionally, the project will include survey, design, and construction of two curb ramps to comply with all ADA requirements. Because Marin Academy's campus encompasses areas on both sides of Fifth Avenue, Cottage Avenue and Mission Avenue, there are a significant number of students who cross the roadways within the marked crosswalks at the intersections of Fifth/Cottage and Mission/Cottage. Of the six crosswalks located at these two intersections, only one crosswalk is uncontrolled - the crosswalk on the western leg of the intersection of Fifth/Cottage. Based on recent turning movement counts, there are over 100 pedestrians who cross Fifth Avenue in the uncontrolled crosswalk at Cottage Avenue on an average school day. 3.
