FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
U.S. 101 / State Route 116 Construction in Petaluma Northbound U.S. 101 Traffic Shift Scheduled for Saturday
Morning, January 11
Petaluma, Sonoma County – Construction continues for the U.S. 101/State Route 116 Interchange Project and the U.S. 101 Petaluma Boulevard South Interchange Project.
Traffic Shift for Northbound U.S. 101
Saturday morning, January 11, Caltrans has scheduled a traffic shift for northbound U.S. 101 at the State Route 116 interchange. Northbound traffic will to be shifted to the left across the median to the southbound bridge. There will be two northbound lanes and two southbound lanes sharing the same bridge. After passing over SR 116, northbound traffic will shift to the right and return to the original roadway. This traffic shift will remain in effect until late 2014 while the old northbound bridge over SR 116 is removed and replaced with a new bridge.
Northbound and southbound lanes will be separated by a concrete barrier, and the speed limit in the construction zone will reduced to 45 MPH. It is essential for the safety of motorists and construction workers that this speed limit is observed. This speed limit will be enforced by the California Highway Patrol.
