Marin County sits just north of the San Francisco and is bordered on the north by Sonoma County, to the east by Solano and Contra Costa counties, and to the west by the Pacific Ocean. The area is served by only one major freeway, U.S. Highway 101, which roughly bisects the county running north and south. The other major transportation artery is Highway 580 which connects the East Bay to San Rafael in central Marin County. While other state highways and country roads provide access to the area, Highways 101 and 580 remain the only interstate highways linking the county with the other major arterials. The traffic on these freeways has steadily increased over the years with the growth of Novato Submarket – Novato is the northernmost city in Marin County, California, and is located approximately 29 miles north of San Francisco and 37 miles northwest of Oakland.
