Seismic work will begin this week on the historic Blue Wing Inn on East Spain Street in downtown Sonoma.
The $350,000 project is being done to protect the building, which is a part of the Sonoma State Historic Park, in the event of an earthquake and to provide for a replacement roof.
Materials will be delivered starting today, Tuesday, July 1. The construction will begin on July 8 and is scheduled to be completed sometime this fall.
The work will involve the removal of the shingles, repairing the roof framing and installing plywood sheeting and re-shingling the roof.
Construction will not impact park activities. Visitors will have access to the Mission, Gen. Vallejo’s Home, the Toscano Hotel, the Barracks and the Casa Grande site.
