Interstate 80 Remains Closed to All Traffic Near Tahoe Due to Storm

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.

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.
