Access to southbound Highway 101 will remain via the existing Dunbarton Road detour.

Directional signs and changeable message boards are in place to help direct drivers.

The northbound Highway 101 off-ramp and southbound Highway 101 on-ramp will remain closed to allow crews to continue to safely work on both the ramps and Highway 101. The full opening of the San Juan Road Interchange is currently scheduled for Spring of 2015.

The $69 million San Juan Road Interchange Project will remove three major at-grade intersections (San Juan Road, Dunbarton Road, and Cole Road) and replace them with a new interchange near the Red Barn at San Juan Road and U.S.101. The project is supported by $10 million from the Recovery Act and $28 million from Proposition 1B, a 2006 voter-approved bond.

More than 60,000 vehicles travel through the U.S. 101/San Juan Road area each day.
