High Tide Closes Highway 101 to Hwy. 1 Connection Near Tam Valley

The ramp connecting Hwy. 101 to Tam Valley and beyond is expected to reopen around 2 p.m., according to Caltrans officials.

Caltrans has closed the connector ramp from northbound U.S. Highway 101 to state Highway 1 near Tam Valley because of an unusually high tide.

The ramp is expected to reopen around 2 p.m., Caltrans spokesman Steve Williams said.

Motorists are advised to take the Marin City/Sausalito exit just south of the Hwy. 1 exit and to expect delays, he said.

Even without the future impact of increasing sea level rise this is another illustration of the inappropriateness of this area (Manzanita and Tam Junction ) being targeted for high density urban housing development in the Draft Marin County Housing Element and the regional designation of Priority Development Area !

I totally agree with the above comment. In their rush to satisfy ABAG regional housing numbers, which, by the way, have no basis in reality or future need, the supervisors are willing to allow housing in the most inappropriate areas leaving low income residents to wade in and out of their homes. In an effort to appease the state housing numbers, it appears that they have lost their sense and their humanity.

Is it time to bring in some Dutch engineers to advise on the possible construction of dikes or levees? This situation is worsening each year, it seems to me. Rising waters and higher tides. The next few days will be touchy, too, as super-high tides continue through next Sunday.
