[ARCHIVED] Construction Begins on the Fulton Road Improvement and Widening Project

NF_Fulton Road Widening

Work began this week on the Fulton Road Improvement project, to widen, reconstruct, and rehabilitate one mile of Fulton Road between Guerneville Road and Piner Road, transforming it into four vehicle travel lanes with a median using roller compacted concrete.  

The project widening will improve the city’s transportation network and promote multi-modal transportation with the installation of bike lanes and sidewalk widening along this one-mile corridor. A High Intensity Activated Crosswalk (HAWK) signal will be installed in front of Piner High School along with a variety of other improvements. See list of improvements Here.

This project has been envisioned in the Santa Rosa 2035 General Plan as an arterial/regional road to be widened to improve circulation, safety, and operation along Fulton Road.  It is anticipated that this project will take 18 to 24 months to complete.

Preparation work began this week including potholing (small excavations in the roadway to identify locations of various utilities) and installation of a construction fence. Next week preparations continue with tree and fence removal to allow for the widening of Fulton Road along the length of the project area. Trees will be replanted as part of this project. Next week work is also expected to include some demolition of Futon Road shoulder areas from Jenes Lane to the north access to Piner High School.

As with all major construction projects, expect traffic delays and reduce your speed of travel through the construction zone. Remember to always drive carefully and watch for flaggers and construction crew.

This project is funded in part by Sonoma County Transit Authority Measure M and Senate Bill 1 (SB1) Road Repair and Accountability Act.
