Grapevine Closed? You Can Still Go North

Heading north on the Golden State Freeway (I-5) this winter through the Grapevine?  If I-5 is closed due to Operation Snowflake because of icy conditions on the freeway, are you really going to try to wait along the highway for the weather to improve? We hope not.  You have options. 

Try quickmap.ca.gov.  This application will show you the locations and current conditions of all of the highways and freeways in the state. 

You can try other northbound routes like US 101, I-15, US-395, and SR-99.  There are other routes that go and east and west that connect the north- and southbound routes (guess what, many of these have been around for decades).

Drive safe and get around the closure.
  Here are some winter driving tips.
