About the RSR
Bridge Access Improvement Project
Over the last 50 years, the Richmond-San
Rafael (RSR) Bridge has efficiently and effectively served Bay Area travelers
while seeing a steady increase in daily vehicle use in recent years. From 2009
to 2014, the Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) across the bridge climbed from
70,000 to 80,000 representing a 14.3 percent increase. The RSR Bridge Access
Improvements will ease congestion by increasing vehicle capacity on the Bridge
and providing a new route for non-motorized travelers.
The RSR Bridge Access Improvement
Project is made possible by a partnership between BATA, Caltrans, the Contra
Costa County Transportation Authority (CCTA), and the Transportation Authority
of Marin (TAM).
On November 5, 2018, the Board of Directors of the Heron Court Home Owner’s Association voted to install signs which require dogs to be on leashes.
Dear Point San Quentin Residents,
On Wednesday July 18th from approximately 2pm to 10pm, Are You Sleeping
Productions, Inc. will be filming scenes in the San Quentin Visitors Parking Lot as
well as an establishing shot taken from the Heron Court Point. In order for our
filming to go smooth, we have received permission from the Point San Quentin
Homeowners Association to post No Parking signs in the six spaces next to 15
Main Street. We will also have a Marin County permit with us on site.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. Thank you for working
with us and we will treat your neighborhood as if it is ours.

It’s not often a new traffic and bike lane are created in a busy Bay Area corridor, but that’s what will happen on the increasingly busy Richmond-San Rafael Bridge.
A key bay protection agency gave its approval Thursday for the addition of an eastbound, third traffic lane on the lower deck and a bike lane on the upper deck of the span. The Bay Conservation and Development Commission reviews all projects that are built in or over the bay and its approval was needed to allow the commute relief plan to move forward.
“It keeps the project on track,” said John Goodwin, spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, which has guided the project through various regulators.
Beleaguered evening commuters could see a third lane open on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge in October 2017.

Beleaguered commuters could see a third lane open on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge in October 2017.
A final design to open a third eastbound lane on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge has been approved by Caltrans, clearing the way for a project to start once a builder is found.
“Work could start as soon as October,” said John Goodwin, spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, the agency that has led the project. It would take one year of work to open the lane.
In addition to a third vehicle travel lane on its lower deck, a bike lane will go on top. The two projects have a $74 million price tag.
