The unpredictable winter weather playing the role of Grinch this holiday weekend. It caused the sporadic closure of Interstate 5 Southbound since morning, stopping traffic dead in its tracks over the Siskiyou Pass to California. And that left hundreds of wayward travelers stranded.
NBC5's Laura Cavanaugh reports.
As of late this evening just after 8pm, O-DOT llifted the travel ban over the pass southbound. And just before 11pm, they lifted the chain restrictions. But now northbound travelers on I-5 are facing challenges near Redding. The interstate is closed to northbound trucks 10 miles north of Redding at Fawndale Road due to snow.
