The City of Sausalito 2016 Street Resurfacing Project is continuing with crack sealing being performed this week and microsurfacing starting next week. Please see the tentative microsurfacing schedule.  The schedule may change as weather and other conditions related to construction may delay or require the City’s contractor to adjust its schedule and order of work. Ghilotti Bros., Inc and Graham Contractors, Inc. will try to minimize inconvenience during construction, however roads will be closed and No Parking signs posted 72 hours prior to actual work days in areas where required. In order to perform the work posted areas need to be free of vehicles. Please note that any vehicle parked in a No Parking zone will be towed at the owner’s expense. Please do not drive on closed streets or lanes as the new microsurface takes time to cure and will be damaged if driven on too soon. Emergency vehicles will be accommodated at all times. Pedestrian will have access during working hours on sidewalks or be detoured where sidewalks are closed. Flaggers, detours and traffic control signs will be used to help direct traffic. Thank you for your patience during the work, and always drive carefully in and around construction zones.

Rapid Flash Beacon System for Bridgeway and Napa Street Crosswalk:

Good News Everyone!

As approved by City Council during the course of its June 14, 2016 meeting, the City is installing a system to make crossing Bridgeway at Napa Street safer. Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons will be installed to warn vehicles traveling on Bridgeway of pedestrians crossing once the push button is activated. This will increase visibility and awareness, especially at night. This system includes brightly-colored signs and flashing LED strobes activated by a push button. The lights are powered by a solar panel and a battery to power them through the night.

The Federal Highway Administration Has found that motorists yield to pedestrians nine times out of ten when rapid flash systems are installed, and only one in five times when normal painted markings are implemented -- a real improvement! You can expect to see this system implemented by the end of October this year, just in time for Halloween.
