Snow Forces The 5 Freeway Over The Grapevine To Close Overnight
The I-5 over the Grapevine was closed in both directions last night due to snow, creating unsafe road conditions.
The details: The California Highway Patrol in El Tejon reported at around 9 p.m. that the I-5 was closed in both directions because of snow. Southbound traffic was being turned around at Grapevine Road in Kern County and northbound traffic was being turned around at Parker Road in Castaic, according to CalTrans. They said the road would reopen once conditions improve.
