This barn has seen better days. Clearly it was once prized for it's proximity to Highway 101 just as it enters the north end of Willits. If I read the project maps correctly, it sits right where the northern junction of the proposed highway bypass will rejoin the current route. It doesn't seem to matter if you are pro-bypass or anti-bypass, the community has expected it to come for about half a century, but the money is never there. This year came close, but Marin out-lobbied the local proponents and made a successful grab of the Willits allocation in the Caltrans budget. This barn will fall down long before it needs to be cleared away.
