The Town has split the 2022 Road Resurfacing Project into two phases after receiving remarkably high bids in July. Phase 1 of the project will include all curb, gutter, sidewalk, ADA curb ramp, and storm drain work and has already been rebid. Construction will begin on Phase 1 in mid-September. Phase 2 will include all road work including asphalt resurfacing, road sealing, and striping, which will be bid in spring 2023. We appreciate your patience with the change in construction schedule.
The Town opened bids and the project was awarded to the low bidder Roadway Construction, Inc. on August 24, 2022. The first working day is anticipated to be on September 19, 2022. Please check back in the next few weeks for a construction schedule of where the contractor will start work.
In an ongoing effort to maintain the road network in Corte Madera, Public Works will be sealing and resurfacing various roadways listed below on the east side of Corte Madera. Work will include installing ADA curb ramps, improving drainage and making repairs to the storm system, installing new signage, refreshing striping, and other related work.
The Sanitary Disctrict No. 2 recently completed the 2021 Sewer Rehabilitation Project, which replaced sewer mains and lower laterals in the Marin Estates neighborhood. The Town will now be resurfacing those roads as part of the 2022 Road Resurfacing Project.

- Creekside Ct

- Ebbtide Psge

This project is part of the Town’s Capital Improvement Program, which strives to rehabilitate the Sanitary District’s aging sewer infrastructure while also maintaining Town roadways.
Sewer Lateral Information:
For residents living on roads not included in the 2021 Sewer Rehabilitation Project and that have not recently tested or replaced their sewer lateral in the last 3 years, we recommend hiring a plumber to check the sewer lateral and make sure it is in good condition and will last a minimum of 5 years. Once the road resurfacing project is complete, there will be a minimum five-year road moratorium to prolong the life of the new pavement surface. During the moratorium period, residents who request an encroachment permit to cut into the road during that time must demonstrate that the work is necessary and must pay for extensive pavement restoration in an effort to maintain the road’s structural integrity, which can add significant cost to the lateral work.
Be advised that Sanitary District #2 requires that a sewer lateral inspection, which could lead to sewer lateral repairs or replacement, be conducted under the following circumstances:
- When a property is sold or when a transfer in property title occurs
- When $50,000 in property improvements are performed over a cumulative three year period
- If there is a sewer overflow malfunction or public health risk at the property
The letter sent out to residents recommended completing sewer work by July 31, 2022, however due to the phasing of the road resurfacing project, residents will have extra time and should plan to finish sewer lateral repairs by December 31, 2022. The District will waive sewer and encroachment permit fees for property owners who are proactive in testing or replacing their sewer lateral prior to the upcoming capital improvement project.
