Chains required on local Sierra highways

November 22, 2010 

Chains were the order of the day Monday morning on several highways leading from the Valley to the Sierra.

On Highway 168, all vehicles except four-wheel-drives will need to chain up eight miles east of Prather, the California Department of Transportation said. There also is one-way controlled traffic on portions of the highway from four miles east of Shaver Lake. The controls are expected to be in place 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Friday. Delays may last as long as 15 minutes.

On Highway 180, chains are needed from nine miles west of the Highway 145 junction. There are construction delays with controlled traffic six miles west of the Highway 63 junction 24 hours a day through Saturday. On Highway 41, there are construction delays from two miles north of Cedar Springs to one-half mile south of Yosemite National Park.
