Interstate 80 Reopens Near Tahoe with Chain Controls

Following a more than 3-hour closure on the popular stretch of Interstate 80 near Tahoe, the road has reopened to thru traffic with chain controls. Although the road is currently open, the all-night storm could bring more closures throughout the night.

The closure came in the early afternoon on Tuesday following 11 concurrent spinouts and collisions between Alta and Truckee. After a massive cleanup was performed by CHP and CalTrans, the road reopened.

Even though the road is open, travel is highly discourage between now and Thanksgiving. Be safe out there!
