Winter Storm Stalls Traffic on I-80 in Northern California

California’s Interstate 80 was closed in both directions due to stalled traffic on Thursday, February 23, amid winter storms moving across the state.

This footage from Caltrans traffic cameras shows the situation at various points along I-80, with traffic moving at a slow pace.

Caltrans said it was highly unlikely the highway would reopen to traffic before Friday morning, but that snowplows were at work.

According to the National Weather Service, the storm would impact California into Saturday, with blizzard conditions making for “nearly impossible travel” in some parts. Credit: Caltrans via Storyful
