The intersection project at Mendocino Avenue and Bicentennial Way continues to cause daytime delays, as does work on the Porter Creek Road bridge. Last week Bean Avenue in Bodega Bay was paved as part of one-time County funding for road sections leading to parks – in this case Salmon Creek Beach. Rob Silva lists the Sonoma County road projects in progress this week.

Also this week, streets in Fountaingrove and Oakmont will get slurry seals, and Santa Rosa police will give special attention to the city’s second most dangerous intersection.

Santa Rosa

Slurry sealing begins today on streets along either side of Fountaingrove Parkway and in Oakmont, with work continuing through Aug. 2. For maps of the streets that will be affected, click HEREand HERE.

For more information, contact Santa Rosa city employees Joe Schiavone, Street Maintenance Superintendent at 543-3895, or Clay Thistle, Associate Civil Engineer at 543-3855,

Santa Rosa police will be monitoring one of the city’s most collision-prone intersections, Highway 12 at Mission Boulevard, which  last year was tied for second place with 11 collisions.

As part of a weekly Monday through Friday special enforcement program, Officer Jeff Adams says officers particularly will be looking for drivers not wearing seat belts, who are illegally using cellphones, are speeding, running red lights or committing lane violations.

Each week, the officers pick one of the city’s top 25 collision-troubled intersections to monitor.
