FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) -- Highway 168 in Fresno County will have a limited reopening on Wednesday morning after being closed for due to heavy snowfall.
Officials say the highway will reopen at 6 am to residents, homeowners, and ski resort visitors.
For over 10 days, access had been closed to Shaver Lake, Huntington Lake and China Peak Resort due to weather conditions.
Caltrans officials say that crews have increased the number of blowers in the area.
Once crews have cleared the roads in the area, they will move to the nearby snow parks.
It has been a ghost town in Shaver Lake as businesses and homes were buried under snow or had mountains of snow blocking the entrance.
China Peak is also hoping to open depending on road conditions.
While Central California is getting a small break from the weather, an atmospheric river is expected to hit this weekend, causing concerns over flooding and rapid snowmelt in the Valley and foothills.
Accuweather Alerts are in place for Friday, Saturday and Sunday as the storm arrives in the Valley.
