Caltrans broke ground June 22 on the Wilfred Avenue Interchange Improvement Project in Rohnert Park.

The project will construct two new lanes, one northbound, one southbound, with both lanes functioning as HOV lanes; construct new, wider on and off ramps; build a new overpass; and build a new, straight underpass linking Wilfred Avenue to Golf Course Road.

“This project will bring the interchange into the 21st Century,” said Bijan Sartipi, Caltrans District 4 director. “And it is the latest chapter in our ongoing effort to modernize Route 101 in the North Bay.”

The project stretches along U.S. 101 from Rohnert Park Expressway in the south to Redwood Road in the north, a distance of 1.6 mi. (2.6 km). The $40 million dollar project is expected to reach completion in late 2012.
