The DRB will conduct its second review of the City of Larkspur’s proposal to replace the Bon Air Bridge located above Corte Madera Creek in the City of Larkspur, Marin County. The proposed pile-supported bridge would include one vehicular lane in each direction, sidewalks and Class I bike lanes. In its review, the DRB will focus mainly on the four issues raised at its meeting of December 10, 2012: the bridge height and possible clearance for recreational boaters; the lighting design and effects on public safety and wildlife; the lane widths and feasibility of building belvederes on the bridge; possible Bay view impacts associated with bridge railings; and how bike lanes and sidewalks on the bridge would connect to facilities located on either end of the bridge.
