Report to the Commission: December 18, 2019


On Wednesday, December 13, Commissioners David Rabbitt, Jake Mackenzie and Tony Tavares spoke at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for two segments of the Highway 101 Marin-Sonoma Narrows widening project. The new segments raised the roadway above the San Antonio Creek floodplain, widened the bridge over the Petaluma River to accommodate an additional HOV travel lane in each direction south of Petaluma, and created a bike path. MTC has provided more than $50 million to the overall widening project.

On Friday, December 15, Commissioners Jake Mackenzie, Damon Connolly and David Rabbitt spoke at the grand opening celebration of the Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) Larkspur station. MTC provided more than $20 million toward the Larkspur station, which allows SMART train passengers to more easily access Golden Gate Ferries to San Francisco.


We will convene a workshop for MTC Commissioners on Thursday, January 30 and Friday, January 31.  We will be taking a deep dive into the issues that we would like to address in the coming year. The first day will focus on transportation issues for the Commission, while on the second day, Commissioners will be joined by ABAG Executive Board Members to tackle topics for both agencies.
