At last. . . Hwy. 101 gains third/HOV lane thru RP
Caltrans on Wednesday morning opened the third northbound lane of Highway 101 through Rohnert Park and plans to open the third southbound lane on Thursday morning.
Press Democrat Road Warrior blogger Jim Fremgen reports about the work to widen the highway in Rohnert Park that began three years ago. Some finishing touches remain in both directions, including paving and striping.
The third lanes will be carpool only during commute hours, ending the bottleneck carpoolers encountered in Rohnert Park where there were only two lanes and no carpool lane. Now, carpool lanes will extend from downtown Windsor to north Petaluma.
