Welcome to your Santa Rosa Main Street Hwy 101 Update for the week of June 11th.

Santa Rosa Main Street is a co-sponsor of www.SantaRosaTraffic.com in an effort to increase communication and awareness about Hwy 101 construction, and let people know that downtown is accessible and open for business. Please encourage your employees, customers, friends and family to visit this site and get up to date information on road blockages, detours and current construction stages.

ATTENTION : Please advise your clients, employees, co-workers, friends and family of the following: THE NORTHBOUND HWY 101 THIRD ST. OFF RAMP (to downtown) WILL BE CLOSED, STARTING THIS THURSDAY, JUNE 15th until OCTOBER 15th 2006. (read below for more info.)
