The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday agreed to spend $6.5 million to improve 13.2 miles of roads.

The roads will get various types of improvements or repair work, and officials said they were selected because of their agricultural or tourism connection.

    Some friends were visiting recently from Washington State,driving their nice ’32 Ford Sedan street rod.On their way down on California roads,they then hit Sonoma County and had to have the car realigned,and fix a cracked fender…all was well before that.They could not believe the road conditions here in and around Sonoma County. Glad some repairs are happening.

    It is hard to believe that Jonive road between Bodega and occidental rd is not on this list. It is a designated scenic road and highly traveled by bicyclist and one of the of the main routes during the annual Bike celebrations.. In the 40 years of our residency and in the best of county finances this road has never been re-paved. It is a disgrace and a very dangerous situation for bikers and traffic.
