SCTA SR 12/Fulton Road Interchange Feasibility Study

SCTA, in partnership with the City of Santa Rosa, is conducting a feasibility study that will examine near-term and long-term improvements in the SR 12/Fulton Road and SR 12/Merced Avenue study area. SCTA and the City are examining improvement options to enhance safety and provide active transportation options for the Santa Rosa community. Throughout this process, SCTA and the City are prioritizing community input and participation.

What is a Feasibility Study?

A feasibility study is an assessment performed before any formal project initiation to identify potential improvements in the study area. This study will consider alternatives for the near-term (complete within 4 years), mid-term (complete within 4 to 10 years), and long-term (longer than 10 years) by studying existing conditions, conducting supporting technical analyses, and collecting community input. The study’s goal is to eventually lead to a phased project implementation of improvements.

Study Areas

SCTA, City of Santa Rosa, and Sonoma County are seeking input from all community members, with a focus on equity priority communities, to inform project priorities and potential improvements.

What parts of the study area should be made safer? Where do the roads get congested? How can the study area be more accessible to different modes of transportation? How do you move through the area now and would that change with different facilities? Your input and ideas on these questions and more will be used by the project team to advance concepts for potential improvements.

The improvements will be implemented in a phased approach that could be dependent on the complexity of the proposed improvements and funding availability.

The project team is currently evaluating existing conditions and will use community input as part of the process to evaluate alternatives for the study area. Some alternatives being considered include mobility hubs linking active transit, providing EV charging, and parking; transit stop improvements; sidewalk/trail gap closures; signalized intersection improvements; grade separated facilities for bicycle and pedestrian use; and an interchange.

Active transportation is non-motorized mobility, primarily referring to walking and cycling. One of the goals of this study is to evaluate active transit alternatives to reduce vehicle emissions and allow for increased safe pedestrian and bicycle access in the project study areas.
