Interstate 15 between Baker and state line reopened to traffic

December 30, 2010 |  8:26 am

Interstate 15 between Baker and the Nevada state line, which had been closed this morning because of snow and ice, has reopened, but Caltrans escorts are still running on the southbound lanes, officials said.

The highway, which had been shut down at 2 a.m., was reopened in both directions at 7:20 a.m., said a California Highway Patrol dispatcher.

The escorts are helping to keep the roadway clear of ice for motorists.

But it won't be long before it warms up and the escorts will no longer be necessary, the dispatcher said.
