Several Road Closures In The Mother Lode
Sonora, CA– Many Mother Lode residents may find themselves planning alternate routes over the holiday weekend due to chain controls on several highways.
According to Cal-Trans, chains or snow tires are required on Highway 108 from Spring Gap Road to the Snow Park Closure. Chains or snow tires are also required on Highway 4 from Tamarack to the Mount Reba Closure.
Highway 120 is closed at Crane Flat and chains or snow tires are required from Silver Lake to Red Lake Creek. Cal-Trans officials say during the winter driving period, motorists should carry chains in mountain areas and should watch out for highway maintenance workers.
