Southbound ramps at Hwy. 101/41 intersection to reopen Wednesday

The Highway 101 southbound on- and off-ramps at Highway 41 in Atascadero will re-open Wednesday, though full project completion is still months away, Caltrans announced Monday.

Motorists using the southbound off-ramp will only be able to make a right turn onto Highway 41 until summer 2010 when the full project is expected to be complete.

The ramps were closed as part of a $17 million project interchange project to rebuild the Highway 101 over-crossing and widen Highway 41 from four to six lanes. A new Highway 101 northbound on-ramp near Highway 41 has already been completed. -Tonya Strickland
