  1. I like the musical accompaniment for the video. I know some people have some concerns about the long term economic health of Willits post-bypass, but I have enjoyed the reduction in traffic congestion that is already apparent. Went to the south end of town, and the typical gridlock in the northbound direction was notably absent.

  2. Last night at a meeting in Willits, someone said that the traffic on the streets has been replaced by the traffic in the aisles at Safeway. Someone else said she had done something she hadn’t done in a long time, ate lunch at a restaurant at the South end of town. It’s still early in the process, but this is encouraging.
