Are there any major traffic problems in Petaluma?

Asked by Stephan, San Francisco, CA Mon Apr 23, 2007

If so, can you tell me where (major streets/commuting paths)?

D Street at 1st Street, Petaluma Blvd. at Washington, E. Washington at McDowell...three places you don't want to get caught at 5:00PM or 8:30AM.

One of the best traffic tips: take the Petaluma Blvd. South exit to East Washington (or Lakeville to Blvd. South, or Blvd. North) when you want to get across town. You'll save a bunch of time in traffic and maybe even some gas!

Petaluma *IS* a traffic problem. When no where else in the north bay is backing up, Petaluma sure is. And all the a**holes seem to get off in Petaluma. They should just close off all the onramps and make it express.

No major traffic.

Because Petaluma grew from a little chicken town to a bustling city thriving with families and businesses, there is some congestion going from the East side of town to the West side, depending on the time of day. There are ways to get around the traffic problem-areas if you happen to be out and about during those busy times but for the most part, it is fairly easy to get from point to point.

Washington Street is the most congested (it connects East Petaluma and West Petaluma). Petaluma Blvd (downtown) can become congested at certain times. McDowell Blvd at intersection of East Washington Blvd is congested.
