All lanes of Highway 101 reopened

BURLINGAME (BCN) — All lanes of northbound state Highway 101 in Burlingame have reopened this afternoon after a crash Friday night caused power lines to fall in the highway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The lanes reopened at 4:20 p.m., according to the CHP.

But the on- and off-ramps at Anza Boulevard and Broadway remain closed and there is no estimated time for the lanes to reopen, CHP officials said.

Southbound lanes reopened at 2:34 p.m., according to the CHP. Power lines fell into the highway at about 9:30 p.m. Friday after a construction crane crashed into transmission tower, CHP Officer Art Montiel said.

Construction workers were using the crane to work on a new vehicle overcrossing at Broadway, Montiel said. High voltage lines covered both north- and southbound lanes and PG&E crews have been working on the damaged tower.
