41 at Shields Avenue.
41 Near the 180 Freeway.
Fresno's downtown skyline is the the background.
The 180 interchange was improved in 1997. 180 opened East of 41 in 1999.
41 approaching 99 South. This old bottleneck is gone.
Here there is room for three lanes of traffic, but it is bottlenecked down to two lanes to form an on ramp to 99 South.
41 used to have to go down 99 to Jensen Avenue, and follow Jensen to the remaining portion of 41. This ran people through an inner city (bad) area. It also caused congestion.
The work was done in 1997 and 1998, and opened up some time in mid 1998.
With the work on 180, 168, and 41, Fresno is getting a very well organized freeway network.
