LOS ANGELES (AP) — The California Highway Patrol says the main highway between Southern California and the San Joaquin Valley probably will remain closed for hours as snow plows struggle to clear the icy mountain route over Tejon Pass.
Some motorists were stranded when the Grapevine area of Interstate 5 was closed shortly after 12:30 p.m. Sunday because of blowing snow.
CHP Officer Patrick Etchebarne says the blizzard conditions have eased Monday morning but there are still flurries and the melting snow has made the road icy. He says it will take time for snowplows to clear about 30 miles of road.
Travel is treacherous on many other roads in the region as the storm drops snow as low as 1,500 feet.
