The first part of reconstruction at the Mathilda Avenue Interchange is complete and open for smoother traffic flow.
As a part of the Mathilda Avenue Improvement at SR237 and US101 Project, the reconfigured US 101 South off-ramp to Mathilda Avenue opened on Friday, November 1.The newly configured off-ramp (Exit 396 A) provides two dedicated left and right turn lanes at a new signalized intersection, allowing for continuation onto either northbound or southbound Mathilda Avenue. This new safety improvement negates the need for a U-turn movement at the Almanor/Ahwanee Ave intersection for access to northbound Mathilda Avenue.
The traffic shift began Thursday night, and the new off-ramp opened Friday morning before the a.m. commute.
