BURLINGAME, Calif. (AP) - Highway 101 has reopened in both directions just south of San Francisco International Airport after a fallen electrical tower forced a weekend closure.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1EsHtDU) Pacific Gas and Electric Co. crews completed repairs early Monday and traffic was moving again in all lanes by 4 a.m.

The electrical tower dropped four power lines onto the freeway in Burlingame Friday night when a heavy-equipment operator hit the tower.

The highway was partially closed for 18 hours Friday to fix some damage. The California Highway Patrol says it scheduled the additional closure for a more complete repair Sunday when fewer drivers were on the road.
