Sonora, CA — Due to heavy snow Tioga Pass is now closed from Crane Flat to five miles west of the junction of U.S. Hwy 395.
Earlier today Caltrans closed Sonora Pass due to three to four inches of snow at the summit. Caltrans Spokesperson Chantel Miller adds this is only a temporary closure and the pass may open by Saturday afternoon.
Miller added that it is currently snowing in Long Barn.
Ebbetts Pass is open for travel. However Caltrans reports one way controlled traffic at various locations from 3.4 miles west of Arnold to 1.4 miles west of Arnold until 3pm today because of maintenance.
