HUME LAKE, Calif. (KFSN) -- In the midst of changing weather conditions this week, Caltrans announced a planned seasonal closure.

Starting on Monday, November 14 at noon, all lanes of Highway 180 will be closed west of Kings Canyon National Park at Hume Lake Road.

The stretch shuts down every winter at the Hume Lake cutoff to protect drivers from potential rockfalls.
