2) Downtown Santa Rosa (Highway 12 to Steele Lane)

The major phase of this project has been constructed which added approximately 2.5 miles of HOV lanes in each direction. Ramp improvements and auxiliary lanes were also provided to encourage HOV use and improve mainline traffic operations. The project included new structures; structure replacement and improvements; sound wall construction; intelligent transportation systems, including ramp metering; and modification to the surrounding local street network to improve local circulation and access. Subsequent phases to widen College Avenue and connect 6th Street under the new freeway bridge are under development. A follow-up landscaping project is scheduled to go to construction in late 2015.
