The California Highway Patrol this afternoon has closed a portion of the 5 freeway in both directions in the Grapevine due to snow. "Snow is sticking to the roadway from Frazier Mountain Park to one mile south of Gorman making travel hazardous at this time," an advisory stated. "Northbound I-5 has been closed at Vista Del Lago and southbound I-5 has been closed at the Grapevine. Escorts are not being provided at this time and a decision on when to reopen the roadway has not been made."
