Southern Segment: Project Description

The Southern Segment of the North-South Greenway Gap Closure Project proposes a multi-use pathway along the existing railroad tracks to the south or Corte Madera Creek or along Old Redwood Highway. The pathway will enhance safety and accessibility for all user types within both the City of Larkspur and Town of Corte Madera, and will provide a connection to the Northern Segment project to improve overall connectivity locally and regionally. The project will connect to the Northern Segment at the transition plaza at the north end of Old Redwood Highway, while the south end of the project will connect to the existing multi-use pathway at the intersection of Wornum Drive and Old Redwood Highway.

The County of Marin initiated work on the Southern Segment in 2016 with a qualified team of design and transportation professionals, some of whom are also working on the Northern Segment. Project construction is anticipated to begin in 2020, following the completion of planning, environmental review, detailed design, and right of way process. Interested stakeholders can follow project progress by visiting this website.
