Caltrans announced on Friday the completion of environmental documents needed to begin design work on the SR-37 Flood Reduction Project in Marin County. 

The Fairfield Daily Republic reported on the Highway 37 issue in its Friday edition. Caltrans also announced that several new agencies are joining the short- and long-term efforts to improve the 21-mile corridor that runs between Vallejo and Novato.

The Resilient SR-37 Partnership agencies include Caltrans, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, the Transportation Authority of Marin, Napa Valley Transportation Authority, Solano Transportation Authority, Sonoma County Transportation Authority and Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit District (SMART).

They look to work closely with colleagues from the United States (U.S.) Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the California Natural Resource Agency, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Board and the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission, as well as the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria and the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation.
