MARIN COUNTY — Caltrans maintenance will close the lower half of the Manzanita Park and Ride lot, along with the shoulder parking on Highway 1, in the city of Mill Valley Monday, November 21 through Monday, November 28, due to forecasted hightide flood warnings. The lower half of the park and ride lot will remain closed 24 hours per day during this time period to prevent overnight parking in the lot, and to ensure the safety of motorists that frequent this park and ride lot. Caltrans will turn on the CMS sign in the park and ride lot starting on Monday, November 14, to notify the public.

High tides alone can flood the lot at certain times of the year . Caltrans closes parts of this lot when rains and/or tides are likely to produce problems. Driving through salt water is dangerous and can cause damage to automobiles.

Caltrans thanks motorists for their patience while we work to maintain our state's highways, bridges, and tunnels.
