Highway 168 shut down due to heavy snowfall, unsafe driving conditions
Due to dangerous driving conditions a full closure of Highway 168 is now in effect, according to Caltrans.
Highway 168 is currently shut down at Beal Fire Road, just north of Prather, in the middle of the four-lane due to snow.
Traffic is being turned around at Beal Fire road.
The closure of Highway 168 will effect those going up and coming down from Shaver Lake and China Peak.
Caltrans has no estimated time of when the closure will be lifted.
