Heading to SFO? Hwy. 101 closed in Burlingame

Truck crash knocks down high-voltage lines across all lanes of highway

Highway 101 remains blocked in both directions in Burlingame this morning due to downed power lines following a Friday night crash.

Highway 101 is expected to remain closed for several hours, until at least noon today. the CHP said.

Commuters are advised to use I-280 as an alternate route.

A tractor-trailer struck a power pole around 9:30 p.m. Friday, knocking high-voltage lines down across both northbound and southbound lanes, according to the CHP.

Crews with PG&E are currently working on an electric tower damaged in the crash.

Traffic is being diverted off the highway at Anza Boulevard in the northbound direction and at Millbrae Avenue in the southbound direction.
