Updated May 6 with road projects throughout Sonoma County.

Watch for road closures and detours in Petaluma as work heats up on the Highway 101 widening project. Here’s the latest information about it and other road construction projects throughout the North Coast during the week of May 5-10.

Petaluma

State Route 116 will be closed Tuesday through Friday while portions of the southbound U.S. 101 bridge are demolished. Hours are 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Tuesday through Thursday nights and 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Friday night. Traffic will be detoured to Caulfield Lane and South McDowell Boulevard.

As construction begins on the Old Redwood Highway Interchange Improvement project, northbound and southbound lanes on U.S. 101 will be closed from 10 p.m.-6 a.m. Northbound off and on-ramps will be closed Monday night while the roadway is restriped. Similar work will cause the southbound on and off-ramps to close Tuesday night.

The second part of the city’s Petaluma Boulevard South “Road Diet” work begins on Monday, May 6, with construction crews scheduled to install new traffic signal poles at Western and B streets. It’s part of a project that will reduce the number of lanes from four to two and add a middle turn lane between East Washington Street and D Street. City sources predict the project will take six weeks to complete, and warn drivers to expect occasional lane closures.

Santa Rosa

City crews continue working on water main construction surrounding Montgomery Village. Expect delays this week along Midway Drive between Farmers Lane and Hahman Drive, performed during daytime hours Monday through Thursday. (No construction work will be done on Friday to allow Mother’s Day shoppers to have full access to Montgomery Village stores.)

Crews also have closed the westbound lanes of Sonoma Avenue near Montgomery Village, funneling traffic into one lane each way.

Water main construction will take approximately two weeks and sewer main construction in this same area will directly follow. Streets impacted by the work include Midway, Magowan and Hahman drives, as well as Sonoma Avenue. See a map of the project and updates HERE.

Sonoma County

A crack seal crew will begin Tuesday and Wednesday on Bloomfield Road from Hwy. 116 west of Sebastopol to the end of the improved road section just beyond Tiller Lane, a private road. The length of the section is 1.3 miles. On Thursday the crew will move to Llano Road to fill cracks between Hwy. 12 and Todd Road, 2.27 miles. One lane traffic controls will be in place while crews are working these sections, beginning at 7:30 a.m. daily to 4 p.m.

Two other roads being prepped for chip seals this week include High School Road between Occidental and Sebastopol and Adobe Canyon Road in Kenwood. The Cotati crew will be grinding damaged asphalt and re-paving on High School Road near Analy High School, and Sonoma staff will be grinding and paving along Adobe Canyon from Hwy. 12 to the Sugarloaf Ridge State Park entrance. One lane traffic controls will be in effect daily on these routes.

The Bridge crew will continue work on Geysers Road this week building a retaining wall, and also a second crew will be on Dry Creek Road replacing the first of three failed culverts. The first culvert beginning today is located near the Wilson Winery on Dry Creek Road, followed by two others near the Coffaro Winery. Minor traffic delays are expected with one lane traffic controls.

Lastly, CDF crews are scheduled to assist with roadside brush removal if available on Tuesday and Wednesday. Both Delta Camp in Suisun and Konocti Camp in Lake County have sent strike teams to fight fires this past week. Brush removal is scheduled for Barnett Valley Road and Martinelli Road this week.

    Petaluma’s getting pretty tough to get around. D street closed at Lakeville, the bridge thing, and of course the horrors of the Washington overpass and environs.

    One thing that could improve one thing: Westbound Lakeville narrows to one lane under 101 now until sometime in 2014 per the signage. At 5pm, the backup extends out to McDowell. A major improvement would be to restripe the lanes back to Marina such that the right lane is “exit only” for 101 North. That will solve some of the jam-up as drivers in the left lane realize at the last minute they need to merge right. Restripe, and by all means provide good signage – there isn’t any right now until you’re already in the soup. Put signs further back, please!

    From a rail blog

    The grade crossing protection at Rohnert Park Expressway in Rohnert Park is broken down again as I type this. The gates are down. ALL traffic is blocked.

    Without authorization from the railroad, in accordance with the procedure recommended on authority of the railroad itself, city officials do not want to raise the gates and direct vehicle traffic through the grade crossing, so an entire stretch of Rohnert park Expressway between State Farm Drive and Country Club Drive is being closed and major traffic disruptions are occurring as all traffic is
    being detoured. This happened last week; obviously, the SMART contractor responsible for the grade crossing protection has been unable to effect a permanent repair. Additionally the SMART contractor appears to be unconcerned enough that an “emergency” response to such a public disruption takes about an hour!

    Bah, to have both Montgomery and Sonoma Avenues being worked on at the same time is a huge hassle! I needed to get from the Memorial Hospital neighborhood to Princeton Drive dental offices (across the street from Whole Paycheck on Why-lupa) and there was no way to avoid the traffic or the detours. I’m glad the work is being done, just wish it could have been scheduled consecutively rather than concurrently.

    It has been said by the residents of Petaluma that the Petaluma planning department and commission, not to forget the Mayor and city council that Petaluma has their priorities wrong when doing construction in town. The Dst construction should have been done at NIGHT!

    The downtown Petaluma Blvd ‘road diet,’ should NOT be done at all!

    Petaluma, wake up and stop the unnecessary construction that causes increased traffic delays in crossing from east to west, and not until you construct new roads to get from one side to the other should Petaluma do any more road construction!
