Any Holiday travel was completely stifled on Tuesday evening when a “bombogenesis” storm descended into Northern California, forcing officials to close many roads in high elevated areas. One of those roads was the popular Interstate 80 near Tahoe, which a of Wednesday morning remains closed in both directions between Nyack and Truckee.
Good morning from Gold Run! Hereâ€™s your morning update!— CHP – Gold Run (@CHPGoldRun) November 27, 2019
I-80 Is closed from Nyack to Truckee for traffic in both directions with no ETO.
SR-20 is closed from Nevada Street to the 80/20 interchange.
The announcement is no surprise since the road was closed almost immediately once the storm hit on Tuesday, and multiple spinouts and collisions forced the California Highway Patrol to put a kibosh on any travel in the area. As of Wednesday morning, the road looked treacherous:
Another notable road closure in NorCal is Interstate 5 between Yreka and Redding, which remains closed for 100 miles due to multiple spinouts. There is no ETO for reopening.
