Those headed to Fresno County via Hwy. 41 today will face detour

Motorists heading to Fresno County today via Highway 41 will encounter a detour that will add about a half hour to their drive, the CHP said.

Highway 41 is closed from the junction with Highway 46, east of Shandon, to the Kern County line for road work, Caltrans said.

Motorists are being diverted to Highway 46 east, then Highway 33 north, to pick up Highway 41 again.

The closure began at 7 a.m. and continues through 5 p.m. It will also be in place on Wednesday, Caltrans said.
