Incoming Weather Closes Passes
Sonora, CA — At noon today both Highway 108 Sonora Pass and Highway 4 Ebbetts Pass will close.
A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for the Sierra Nevada, so Caltrans has called for a preemptive closure to ensure motorists safety. Snow is expected to fall as low as 5,000 ft. later today, according to the National Weather Service.
Caltrans Spokesperson Chantel Miller says maintenance crews will reevaluate the closure on Thursday and determine if the passes can be reopened for the weekend.
