Caltrans has postponed its plan to close a southbound lane of Highway 101 between Healdsburg and Windsor for several nights to allow emergency repairs to concrete sections of the road.

The closures were to have started Thursday night and would have affected the right southbound lane from Old Redwood Highway in Healdsburg to the downtown Windsor offramp.

Caltrans spokesman Robert Haus said in a statement Thursday afternoon it wasn’t known yet when the work would proceed.

    The right NORTHBOUND lane of that stretch has needed repair for several years. I assume it is a Caltrans experiment to see how long it takes to turn asphalt to gravel.

    Mr. Haus – We’ve been waiting years and years for the southbound lane to be repaired between Healdsburg and Windsor – drivers routinely drive in the left lane to avoid driving this stretch. Please don’t let the delay be too long.

    I wholeheartedly agree with Sally. It is very frustrating as there are often people going below the speed limit in the number one lane due to the condition of both the North and Southbound number two lanes between Healdsburg and Windsor. The “patch jobs” that have taken place in the last year or so have made the lanes worse :(
