Detours to begin Monday on Highway 101 in the North County

Nighttime motorists on Highway 101’s southbound lanes will again be detoured at Highway 41 starting Monday.

The lane closure, which first began on June 6, is set to start again Monday night and continue through 5 a.m. Friday.

This is the last stretch of scheduled nightly southbound lane closures for the project, officials said, unless there are unforeseen delays.

Highway 101’s southbound lanes will be closed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. nightly to allow Caltrans crews to prepare the newly rebuilt southbound bridge over Highway 41.

Motorists heading southbound will exit the highway at Traffic Way and will re-enter at Curbaril Avenue.

The new bridge is part of the three-year, $17 million Highway 101/41 Interchange Project designed to reconstruct the area where the two highways intersect.

The project is expected to be complete by the end of the year, according to Caltrans.
