FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
U.S. 101 Airport Blvd. Interchange Project
New Ramps to Open July 17
SONOMA COUNTY – Caltrans has scheduled lane and ramp closures on July 17, 2014 for the U.S. 101 Airport Blvd. Interchange Project.
Opening of Ramps at the U.S. 101 Airport Boulevard Interchange
On Thursday, July 17, Caltrans will adjust the timing of new traffic signals for both the northbound off-ramp to Airport Boulevard and the southbound on-ramps to U.S. 101. This work will enable Caltrans to open the new on-ramp and off-ramp at the Airport Boulevard Interchange.
- From 6 a.m. to 12 noon, Caltrans will close one northbound lane of U.S. 101 and remove k-rail from the new northbound off-ramp. The traffic signal will be timed and the off-ramp will remain open.
- Once the new northbound off-ramp is open, the Fulton Road off-ramp will be closed.
- From 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., Caltrans will close one southbound lane of U.S. 101 and remove k-rail from the southbound loop on-ramp and the new diagonal southbound on-ramp. The traffic signal will be timed and the southbound on-ramps will remain open.
- Once the southbound on-ramps are open, the Fulton Road on-ramp will be closed.
Continuing this week and next week there will be additional closures for lanes and ramps as the contractor does final paving for the project. Please drive cautiously through the construction zone and leave a safe traveling distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you. Please remember to Slow for the Cone Zone. The California Highway Patrol will be on site during these lane and ramp closures.
