Mendocino Avenue Reimagined


Mendocino Avenue Reconfiguration: 4th Street to College Avenue

Project Description

The City of Santa Rosa will apply a slurry seal pavement overlay to Mendocino Avenue between 4th Street and College Avenue in Summer 2023, presenting a unique opportunity to restripe the road to better accommodate people visiting Downtown.

Traffic along this section decreased 60 percent following the reunification of Old Courthouse Square. City staff recommends removing one of the two northbound travel lanes and reallocating that space for another use, such as angled parking or bike lanes.
