o Detour 2: Residents who live or work on the east side of the freeway or on Kastania Road can exit at State Route 116/Lakeville Highway, take southbound U.S. Highway 101, and exit at Petaluma Boulevard South to access their residence or business.
o Detour 3: During the closure of Petaluma Boulevard South, park and ride users, local residents, and businesses who want to travel north on U.S. 101 can take the southbound U.S. Highway 101 on-ramp from Petaluma Boulevard South, travel to the Redwood Landfill, and return to northbound U.S. Highway 101.
