Saturday Work

Work is scheduled for this Saturday, April 20th, as the contractor continues to remove and replace sections of the road surface that are out of compliance at their own expense. Working hours on Saturday are 9:00 A.M. 5:00 P.M. Motorists should anticipate delays when traveling through the area. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to complete this project on time.

Construction Underway and Upcoming

Note – the schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
[updated!] Crews are back on-site this week and have begun removing and replacing non-compliant portions of the southbound lanes of Fulton Road near the Piner Road intersection. Once completed the contractor will continue working in the southbound lanes towards Guerneville Road.

We will provide updates in subsequent newsletters on changing traffic conditions before they occur. Access to driveways on the west side of Fulton Road may be periodically impacted during this time; however, crews will work with residents and businesses to limit disruptions.

Upcoming construction work will include:

  • Pavement repair work is currently underway and taking place throughout the project site
  • Continuation of median work
  • Installation of bus shelters and benches is set to begin next week
  • Continuing installation of irrigation main and laterals

All schedules are subject to change due to weather and unforeseen circumstances. Be sure to visit for up-to-date information.

  • A HAWK Signalized Crosswalk has been installed between Piner High School and Youth Community Park on Fulton Road, which stops vehicle traffic only when activated by a pedestrian. This is the third HAWK beacon crossing installed within the city limits. For more information on HAWK signalized crosswalks, please visit the city website.
  • The Fulton Road northbound bus stop near Quail Hollow Drive has been temporarily relocated to the eastbound lane of Piner Road, near the Fulton Road and Piner Road intersection. The Fulton Road northbound bus stop near Guerneville Road has been temporarily relocated just south of the Guerneville Road intersection. For general bus service information, please visit Santa Rosa CityBus.

Project Overview and Schedule

This project will widen, reconstruct, and rehabilitate one mile of Fulton Road between Guerneville Road and Piner Road, transforming it into an updated, four-lane regional/arterial street, as well as provide many other improvements. The project started in June 2022 and is expected to last for approximately 24 months (all schedules are subject to change depending on weather, unanticipated circumstances, and seasonal access restrictions to creek areas).

Work hours: 7 A.M. to 7 P.M. Monday thru Friday. With City approval, periodic work on nights (8:30 P.M. to 5:00 A.M.) or weekends may take place.
