Flooding Costs Mount on CA State Route 37

Sonoma Index-Tribune columnist Jason Walsh has updates on the work of the four-county State Route 37 Policy Committee, which is exploring a solution to the Highway 37 flooding problem. He notes that a “four-mile leg of the highway was finally reopened [on February 23] after an $8 million emergency repair job in which 1,400-feet of asphalt was raised between 1 and 2 feet to keep it out of the drink – at least for now.” One solution officials have under consideration is a $4.3 billion elevated, four-lane causeway that would likely be a toll facility.
