Grapevine Section Of I-5 Closed Due To Storm

CASTAIC (CBS) — A storm that brought heavy rain, wind and snow Sunday prompted the closure of a long stretch of the Golden State (5) Freeway through the Grapevine, a California Highway Patrol Officer said.

The closure, which started just north of Parker Road, was ordered at 7:09 p.m., said CHP Officer Krystal Carter.

No weather-related collisions were reported in the area, but weather precautions were being taken, Carter said.

Alternate routes include the Antelope Valley (14) Freeway, which was experiencing extreme congestion.
