Update: All Mountain Passes Closed
Update at 7 p.m.: All three of the Mountain Passes have been shut down due to snow. Highway 4 Ebbetts Pass was closed at the Mount Reba turnoff and Highway 120 Tioga Pass was shut down at Crane Flat late Wednesday afternoon. Caltrans had already halted traffic on Highway 108 Sonora Pass at Kennedy Meadows earlier in the day. There is no word on when the passes could reopen as more wet weather is expected this weekend.
Original post at 7:29 a.m.: Sonora, CA — Highway 108 Sonora Pass is closed at Kennedy Meadows this morning due to precipitation that fell overnight.
Caltrans indicates that it is not immediately clear how long the pass will remain closed. Highway 4 Ebbetts Pass and Highway 120 Tioga Pass have remained open.
