Paradise Drive Sidewalk Widening Project

Paradise Drive Sidewalk Widening – San Clemente Drive to Seawolf Passage 

The Town of Corte Madera was in the design phase of a project to widen the then-existing 4-foot wide sidewalk on the north side of Paradise Drive to 8 feet, between San Clemente Drive and Seawolf Passage, in order to create a new multi-use path that was accessible for both pedestrians and bicyclists. The new multi-use path connects to the Bay Trail at San Clemente Drive and provides a pathway for both pedestrian and cyclists to use outside of the busy roadway. The project also raised the sidewalk up to 15 inches in various places to help repair steep cross slopes on Paradise Drive and improve drainage within the project limits.

The Town resurfaced Paradise Drive as part of the 2021 Road Rehabilitation Project, shortly after completion of the sidewalk-widening project.

This project originated in the Safe Routes to Schools Task Force Committee with many requests coming from residents in the Mariner Cove neighborhood who were concerned about the narrow existing sidewalk that is used heavily by children who use the route to walk to school. The project was discussed at the Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC).

The Town received a federal One Bay Area Grant (OBAG), which contributed $595,000 towards construction of this project.
