UPDATE: I-5 over the Grapevine has re-opened in both directions

FRESNO, Calif.

However, officials say conditions are still dangerous and motorists should take extreme caution when driving.

Wind gusts at the higher elevations of the freeway were recorded at 85 miles per hour on Sunday morning, California Highway Patrol Officer Marc McWilliams said. The closure was ordered by the CHP at 12:30 p.m. Sunday when icy roadways and drifting snow caused dangerous driving conditions for motorists.

The Highway re-opened just before noon on Monday.          NEWS BY LOCATION | ABC30 BLOGS | DISCUSSION FORUMS
