Wilfred Avenue will open Friday, Nov. 1.

The newly widened Wilfred Avenue in Rohnert Park is ready to go, with a VIP Ribbon Cutting Monday and plans to open it to the public on Friday, Nov. 1. It’s the key feeder street to the new Graton Casino & Resort, which has its own VIP opening Nov. 1 before welcoming the general public on Nov. 5. For more details about the $18.2 million project, which was paid for by the casino, read this Road Warrior post.

On Highway 101, construction continues at the Airport Blvd. interchange north of Santa Rosa and between Petaluma and Novato as part of the Marin-Sonoma Narrows project. Read posts about them here and here.

County road maintenance crews are crack sealing Faught Road in Wikiup Monday. It was planned to start last week but was delayed due to equipment failure. The crack sealing is being done on the improved section of Faught Road from Old Redwood Hwy. to just beyond Carriage Lane. Midweek, the crack seal crew will move to Stewarts Point Skaggs Springs Road.

Cal Fire crews will be doing staff training this week. Expect crews to be on Burnside Road and Vine Hill School Road Wednesday only.
