BHCA Members Betsy Swenerton and Jim Draper are participating in a Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) Stakeholders Working Group (SWG) that is exploring design alternatives for a direct freeway connection between Northbound 101 and Eastbound 580. Make sure your opinion is heard regarding the seven alternatives being considered for the new direct connection between Northbound 101 and Eastbound 580.

July 21, 2020 Meeting
The second Stakeholder Working Group meeting for the 101N-580E Direct Connect Project took place on July 21. Many Bret Harte neighbors participated in the Zoom meeting, where TAM project team members presented the seven design alternatives in greater detail. There are several alternatives that would greatly impact Bret Harte, Lomita/California Park and the Canal neighborhoods, not to mention the critical commercial and industrial businesses along Andersen, Bellam, Simms Street and Francisco Boulevard. Download the complete presentation here.
The next Stakeholders Working Group Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, August 25 at 3:00 p.m. Information on how to join the meeting will be sent out to the BHCA e-mail list and posted on the website as soon as it's available.
June 29, 2020 Meeting
The first SWG meeting took place on Monday, June 29, where the design team presented a broad overview of the project including seven design alternatives being considered. SWG meetings are conducted using Zoom and are open to the public. This is a very important project that has been in discussion for over a decade, and will have far-reaching impacts (hopefully positive ones) for Bret Harte and surrounding neighborhoods. We encourage all of our Bret Harte residents to participate in these early meetings. The presentation from the June 29th meeting is available here and on the TAM website.
