Willits Bypass Project Update Cancelled At City Council’s Request

north_interchangeThe Willits City Council has asked Caltrans representatives to cancel its Willits Bypass Project update scheduled for August 28.

Instead, an agenda item has been added to discuss a proposed letter to Governor Brown.  The letter would ask the governor to direct Caltrans to abandon the second phase of the Willits bypass, which will add two more lanes, and to immediately redesign the north interchange  with the intention to reduce environmental impacts.  According to Caltrans construction staff, at this late date making such a change would likely increase costs.
