Sir Francis Drake/Whites Hill Improvements Coming

Posted: 2019-06-17

Sir Francis Drake Boulevard between the Brown Bridge and Fairfax town limits will be undergoing major improvements this summer.  The project will widen the roadway between Baywood Canyon and the Fairfax limits to provide for an eastbound bike lane starting at Baywood Canyon at the bottom of Whites Hill that will connect with the existing bike lane on Sir Francis Drake that continues through Fairfax.  In the westbound direction, the bike lane will extend from Fairfax and up the Whites Hill grade to the Brown Bridge and then continue into the San Geronimo Valley.  The entire roadway will be repaved and the downhill lane and shoulder will receive a high-friction treatment to improve traction and reduce wheel slippage, particularly when the pavement is wet.  The project will begin in mid-July and is scheduled for completion in October.
