Caltrans repaved Point Reyes Station’s three-block-long main street, Highway 1, Wednesday and Thursday nights. Wednesday night the southbound lane was paved; Thursday night it was the northbound lane.


Each night, a state highway crew ground off a three-inch-deep layer of the main street and then filled the trench with asphalt.


Point Reyes Station resident Tony Ragona, owner of Windsong Cottages bed-and-breakfast inn, encountered the paving project Thursday evening while picking up his mail and was good enough to contribute these dramatic photos. Seen here at right is the Bank of Petaluma.

Road crews wear highly reflective vests to make sure nighttime drivers see them.
