Snow Closes I-5 at Grapevine, Sends Traffic Toward Highway 101

Caltrans says Central Coast motorists should expect heavier than normal traffic on Highway 101

Interstate 5 over the Grapevine north of Los Angeles has been closed in both direction due to snow on the roadway, Caltrans announced late Friday.

The closure likely will mean heavier than normal traffic on Highways 101 and 166 in Santa Barbara County until the road is reopened, Caltrans said.

A cold storm that swept through the Central Coast on Friday dropped snow levels below the 3,500-foot level, according to forecasters. Tejon Pass over the Grapevine peaks at 4,160 feet.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
