The Press- Democrat reports that the widening of Highway 101 at Santa Rosa was completed yesterday. Sounds like it should be fairly easy to make it through there now.
In related news, the Ukiah Daily Journal reports the north and south sections of the Confusion Hill bypass bridge were connected Thursday. It isn't planned to be opened for traffic, though, until October of next year.
For some reason I still have a hard time thinking of Confusion Hill as being in Mendocino County rather than Humboldt.
