Fresno to Pismo Beach Highway 41 Detour

A section of Highway 41 in Kings County that carries San Joaquin Valley residents to the coast will close for five months of road work, Caltrans said Friday. More than 8 miles of Highway 41 in Kettleman City will close in both directions starting Feb. 26, the California Department of Transportation said.  Highway 41 near Kettleman City is a common route for people from the Fresno area who are headed to the coast for destinations like Pismo Beach, Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo.The road work is meant to resurface and restore the highway between Quail and Nevada avenues to extend its life, officials said in a news release. The length of the closure could be extended depending on weather.

Caltrans recommended commuters who might normally use that stretch of highway detour using Highway 198 in the Lemoore area to reach Interstate 5, which connects to Highway 41 south of the road work in Kettleman City.
