Mudslide Closes Down Westbound I-80 at Nevada State Line

Traffic along westbound Interstate 80 was stopped at the Nevada state line Friday after a mudslide blocked the roadway.

Rains from a thunderstorm caused the landslide near Floriston and forced traffic to come to a standstill starting at Gold Ranch Casino.

Caltrans crews were able to clean things up and reopen the roadway by around 8:17 p.m.
