Watch for a nine-day closure of West Eighth Street in Santa Rosa, starting at 7 a.m. today for construction that will last until 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 19. Contractors will be working west of Highway 101 as part of the ongoing effort to replace grate crossings for upcoming SMART train service.

“While the road is torn up, they will replace old sewage pipes for the City of Santa Rosa,” said Matt Stevens, SMART’s community relations manager.
