Mountain Passes Closed

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — Two Mother Lode mountain passes are closed due to the changing weather conditions.


Because of the winter-like weather, Highway 108 Sonora Pass is now closed at Kennedy Meadows, and Highway 4 Ebbetts Pass is closed at the Mount Reba turnoff. Caltrans says it was done primarily as a precautionary measure. Very light snow was reported in the area of Sierra Village (4,800 ft.) starting at around 9:30 this morning. Caltrans hopes to open the passes sometime tomorrow.


Highway 120 Tioga Pass remains open at this time. For the latest from the National Weather Service, click here.
