Traffic Flowing Again on Alexander Avenue
The Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District reopened Alexander Avenue to all traffic at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 2. The roadway had been closed to motor vehicles since Monday, February 20, due to a series of mudslides near the Sausalito city limit. Alexander Avenue offers the only route to Highway 101 and the Golden Gate Bridge from the southern end of Sausalito.
The Bridge District reports that approximately 1,200 cubic yards of soil and vegetation were cleared from the site, with much of the soil being recycled by the National Park Service. The District is currently developing a plan for a permanent fix to the slide area. The additional work on the site is expected to begin in the latter part of 2017.
