Caltrans, CHP and county: Don’t drive if at all possible

We are beginning to sound like a broken record but Caltrans, the CHP and county officials all have the same message:  traveling during this storm (Monday-Wednesday) is HIGHLY DISCOURAGED as high winds and heavy snow are causing poor visibility and dangerous travel conditions. If it’s not in your area yet, it will be soon.

Caltrans advises that if motorists choose to travel, they should plan for road closures and delays, and should have chains and other supplies  in their vehicle.

If closures occur, motorists SHOULD NOT use non-highway alternatives. These routes may not be maintained or open during inclement weather and could also have size restrictions for larger vehicles.

For up to date roadway information, please use QuickMap.dot.ca.gov. You can also use the following link to view cameras throughout District 2: https://cwwp2.dot.ca.gov/tools/d2allcams.htm. And if you’re traveling beyond California’s borders, check out One Stop Shop here: https://oss.weathershare.org/?clat=40.60821…
Caltrans also advises that when it comes to their cameras, they don’t show the whole picture. A large portion of roadways are not shown. This means conditions could be dangerous right up the road. It’s also important to remember that all decisions made in District 2 are made for the safety of the traveling public and its employees. Here’s a sampling of what’s expected:
