News release issued by Caltrans District 6, Wednesday, January 6, 2021
The Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announces the temporary closure of State Route 41 between Excelsior Avenue and Elkhorn Avenue in Fresno County. Caltrans maintenance crews will be performing striping operations during this time.
The following closures will be in effect on Tuesday, January 12, weather permitting:
- Northbound and southbound State Route 41 between Excelsior Avenue and Elkhorn Avenue between 5:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
A signed detour will be available; see attached detour map. Significant delays are expected. Please remember to allow additional time to safely arrive at your destination. Seeking alternate routes is highly suggested while these operations occur.
After the completion of this safety project, this 5-mile stretch of State Route 41 between Excelsior Avenue and Elkhorn Avenue will permanently transition to a no-passing zone. For added safety, permanent “No Passing Zone” signage will be added to this stretch of highway as well. Temporary Changeable Message Signs (CMS) will remain in the area for several days following the completion of the project to help inform motorists of these changes.
Caltrans wants to remind motorists to stay attentive and undistracted while driving and to be cognizant of workers and vehicles in maintenance work zones.
Caltrans would like to thank residents and commuters for their patience and remember to please “Slow for the Cone Zone.”
