ATASCADERO Highway 41 between Morro Bay and Atascadero is now officially reopened after being closed since early January when heavy rain caused a series of rockslides along the road.

According to Caltrans, motorists should expect one-way reversing traffic delays Monday through Friday for the next two weeks, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., as additional work is completed.

As of last Thursday, crews removed 21,000 cubic yards of dirt and rock, enough to fill more than six Olympic-sized swimming pools, officials said. Netting is currently being installed on the hillside to prevent more slides.
