I-80 Closed, Drivers Made to Turn Around


Drivers trying to head over Donner Pass Tuesday afternoon were stopped, and are being turned around.

Eastbound traffic was stopped at Alta, and told they must return back down the mountain.

A visual glance at traffic cameras near the summit show complete white-out conditions, and there are reports of too many spinouts, making for unsafe driving conditions.

It is not clear when CHP or CalTrans will re-open the highway.
