I-80 reopened near Donner Pass, maximum chains required

| January 11, 2017

A chart from Caltrans showing chain locations for maximum chains.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has reopened I-80 between the Nevada state line to Colfax after it was shut down due to a winter storm.

The agency says maximum chains are required for trucks (see chart to the right), and traffic will be allowed through the Donner Pass area single file with a 30 mph speed limit. U.S. Highway 50 is also open with the use of chains required as an alternate route.

I-80 in Nevada east from the California state line is open. Updated road closure information from Caltrans can be found here.
