Official Closure Of Highway 4 For The Winter

Caltrans announced the official closure of Highway 4 for the winter yesterday.  The recent storms, and accumulation of snow, make the seasonal closure necessary for the safety of motorists and Caltrans crews.   Each year, Caltrans crews work to clear debris, remove snow and make repairs so the highway can reopen by the Memorial Day weekend.   Caltrans would also like to remind drivers that winter weather and road conditions can change rapidly.   Motorists should expect the worst conditions and be prepared when traveling in areas subject to hazardous conditions.   Caltrans recommends that drivers carry chains, blankets, water, food, a shovel, gloves, a flashlight, and sand or kitty litter to provide traction in case your vehicle becomes stuck.
