All lanes reopened Friday on northbound U.S. Highway 101 in San Mateo County following a fatal pedestrian crash that shut down the freeway for more than two hours, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The pedestrian, a woman, was apparently killed in the road near the South Airport Boulevard offramp this evening, according to Sgt. Diana McDermott.
The multi-vehicle collision, which was reported around 8:20 p.m., blocked all northbound lanes. A severe traffic alert was issued around 8:45 p.m.
An investigation is underway to determine how the pedestrian came to be on the roadway.
The woman had already been struck when she was found by authorities.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
