4) North (Steele Lane to Windsor River Road)

This project added approximately 7.5 miles of HOV lanes in each direction. The project has been split into three phases, A, B, and follow-up landscaping.

Phase A extended HOV for 7.5 miles, from Steele Lane in Santa Rosa to Windsor River Road in Windsor. It also provided ramp improvements, a complete rehabilitation of the roadway, and intelligent transportation systems including ramp metering. Phase A started construction in late 2008 and was completed in 2010.

Phase B includes interchange improvements to the Airport Boulevard and Fulton Road interchange complex including a new, wider Airport Boulevard Overcrossing. The Highway 101 ramps at Fulton Road will be closed to avoid operational (merging) problems caused by the two closely spaced intersections. Additionally, the project will also construct sound walls at various locations in the Town of Windsor. Construction began on the North-B project in October, 2012 and was completed, ahead of schedule, in June 2013. http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist4/101airportblvd/

A follow-up landscaping project is planned to begin construction in 2016. Exhibit | Project
